Alwin Nikolais Celebration


Under the artistic direction of Alberto del Saz, the work of Alwin Nikolais comes back to The Joyce for the first time since the 2010 worldwide centennial celebration of this master choreographer. “A true dance luminary, a choreographer, designer, composer of electronic music and a pioneer of multi-media dance” (The New York Times), Nikolais will be honored with a program performed by The Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company that will include Tensile Involvement (1955), Gallery (1978), Mechanical Organ III (1983), and Crucible (1985), some of the most renowned works that he created during his long and successful career.

This engagement is dedicated to the memory of Murray Louis.
