Description: The Joyce has designed this ballet festival to recognize the many dancers and choreographers who are creating work outside the traditional large company milieu and are forming their own small companies. Featured are companies from across the US, whose work represents a range of ballet styles, from neo classical to contemporary. Company C Contemporary Ballet, praised for its "thrilling...high velocity dancing" (San Francisco Chronicle), makes its Joyce debut with a program full of fresh, innovative choreography that embodies the athletic prowess, emotion, intelligence, and humor that have kept it at the forefront of Bay Area performing arts for over a decade. Under artistic director Charles Anderson, a former New York City Ballet dancer, the company will present a program featuring works commissioned for its 2013 season, including works by Brian Reader and Patrick Corbin, that will be performed for the first time in New York.
