KEIGWIN + COMPANY (K+C) returns to The Joyce Theater, 175 Eighth Avenue, NYC, for its annual weeklong season including the World Premieres of two new dances on June 12 - 17, 2012.  Performances: Tuesday and Wednesday at 7:30pm; Thursday through Saturday at 8pm; Sunday at 2pm & 7:30pm.  Tickets are 0-9 and can be purchased at JoyceCharge at 212-242-0800 or joyce.org.  Prices subject to change.  

Pop culture fuses with high art in KEIGWIN + COMPANY’s electrifying brand of contemporary dance. K+C returns to The Joyce in 2012 with two World Premieres that combine Larry Keigwin’s theatricality and wit, ranging from a work for 12 dancers set to a score by electronic composer Jonathan Pratt, to a quartet for the company’s male dancers. With a cast of 12 dancers, 12 Chairs will explore rejection and survival with driving physicality, using the game “musical chairs” as an inspirational launching point. The quartet for four men, Contact Sport, will utilize highly athletic and vigorous movement to examine the ever-evolving relationships between four brothers, accompanied by the iconic sounds of Eartha Kitt. Trio (2011), a playful, whimsical dance that originally premiered as Balloon Dance at Works & Process at the Guggenheim last fall, will be re-staged. Celebrated by The New York Times as “divinely well-structured,” Megalopolis (2009) will round out the program.  This dazzling work blends a futuristic urban vision with nightclub camp to a mash up of minimalism and hip-hop.
