CorbinDances celebrates its first Joyce Season with the World Premiere of "Shady", an evening-length suite of dances based on a single phrase of movement. "Shady" features new music composed by DJ/Producer Quinn Raymond, lighting by Joe Novak and costumes by the venerable Liz Prince. Michael Trusnovec (Paul Taylor Dance Company) and Sharon Milanese (Lucinda Childs Dance Company) join the company’s core dancers for its Joyce debut. Once one of Paul Taylor Dance Company’s most beloved dancers and now a proven choreographer in his own right, Patrick Corbin’s work has been described as “fully and uncompromisingly danced… uninhibited, brash, spirited, musical, [and] space engulfing,” said Lisa Traiger, Dance Magazine.
