For over 40 years, Maguy Marin has astounded international audiences with her arresting choreographic vision. This season, her company takes the Joyce stage to perform BiT, a chilling and confrontational work contemplating violence created for six dancers who careen through space, shifting from ecstatic celebration to frenzied scurry. With BiT, Marin investigates how each choice, each step, and each movement a person makes combine to create a kind of unique rhythmic imprint. And if each person’s rhythm is distinct, being together can sound alternatingly like a chorus or like cacophony. As always, Marin gives us both the bitter and the sweet, the melody and the noise, and she doesn’t apologize for it but “dares to show us her uncompromising truth.” –The New York Times
