The Lucinda Childs Dance Company at The Joyce
The Lucinda Childs Dance Company
Over two weeks, The Joyce has the honor of presenting two programs of work by Lucinda Childs who, since performing with the historically significant Judson Dance Theater in 1963 and founding her company in 1973, has gone on to receive much-deserved recognition as one of America’s greatest modern choreographers. During week one, her company will perform Lucinda Childs: A Portrait (1963-2016), a five-decade retrospective devoted to such seminal works as Pastime (1963), Interior Drama, (1977), Concerto (1993), and the NY Premiere of a new work commissioned by The Joyce, The Sun Roars Into View (2016), which features the music of Colin Stetson and Sarah Neufeld (Arcade Fire, Bell Orchestre). The second week is devoted to the magnificent Dance, Childs’ 1979 signature evening-length work that features a commissioned score by Philip Glass and the original film decor by Sol LeWitt in which the Company’s original dancers are projected in perfect synchronization with the live dancers on stage. Both weeks promise to be remarkably “close to stage heaven.” The Guardian (London)
