Our three diverse programs at The Joyce in February are collected under the season theme Sacred/Profane. Classic works by Martha Graham and works by four contemporary choreographers will be viewed through this lens highlighting the mystical, spiritual and humorous aspects of magical thinking.
Graham masterworks this season include selections from Dark Meadow, which evoke the eternal search for connection; Primitive Mysteries, reflecting the purity found in the virgin myths of the Southwest; and Clytemnestra Act 2, with its ancient saga of family tragedy on a mythic scale. The Graham favorites Diversion of Angels and Maple Leaf Rag round out the line up.
The engagement also features Nacho Duato's Rust, and Pontus Lidberg's Woodland, both created for the Company in recent years.
And we’ll premiere the World Premiere of Mosaic by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, who draws on Sufi mysticism to create a piece set to traditional Middle Eastern music, and the World Premiere of I used to love you by Annie-B Parson, inspired by Graham’s Punch and the Judy and exploring the domestic rough-and-tumble of that street theater classic.
