Kicks Off Its 2018-2019 Fall/Winter Season With The Return Of
A Three-Week Engagement Of Dance
Experienced In A Specially-Transformed Joyce Theater
Conceived & Curated by Lar Lubovitch
Featuring Choreography By
Rashaun Mitchell + Silas Riener
September 24 – October 13
(New York, NY – September 12, 2018) After a season of thrilling and diverse programming, The Joyce Theater Foundation, Inc. (Linda Shelton, Executive Director), New York City’s premier presenter of dance, proudly kicks off its 2018-2019 Fall/Winter Season with the return of the wildly popular NY Quadrille, which had its debut in the fall of 2016. The three-week engagement, performed in a transformed Joyce Theater performance space, is conceived and curated by famed choreographer Lar Lubovitch, and features works by some of today’s most acclaimed and celebrated choreographers/companies including John Jasperse Projects, Kyle Abraham’s A.I.M, former Merce Cunningham dancers Rashaun Mitchell + Silas Riener, Donna Uchizono Company, and Beth Gill.
The title, NY Quadrille, was inspired by the 18th century dance of the same name. A ‘quadrille’ was a dance performed in a rectangular configuration and seen from four sides; therefore, as it was for its 2016 debut, The Joyce Theater will be temporarily transformed from September 24 – October 13. A specially-designed platform will be built to extend from the front half of the (“regular”) stage and over the first six rows of seating in the theater; riser seating will be built on the stage, allowing for four-sided viewing options in The Joyce’s proscenium theater. Each choreographers’ quadrille will be performed in their own program as follows:
John Jasperse Projects: Hinterland
Mon–Wed 7:30pm; Thurs–Fri 8pm
(Curtain Chat: Tue, Sep 25)
A.I.M: Dearest Home
September 29–October 1
Sat 8pm; Sun 2pm & 7:30pm; Mon 7:30pm
