Ballet v6.0: BalletCollective
The Joyce has designed this ballet festival to recognize the many dancers and choreographers who are creating work outside the traditional large company milieu and are forming their own small companies. Featured are companies from across the US, whose work represents a range of ballet styles, from neo classical to contemporary.
A marvelous fusion of art forms, BalletCollective (formerly known as Satellite Ballet) makes its Joyce debut with an evening of works that honor its commitment to complete collaboration. The program includes a world premiere collaboration between Schumacher, composer Ellis Ludwig-Leone, poet Cynthia Zarin, and new music ensemble ACME, as well as a revised version of the company’s Epistasis (2012). Both works showcase the company’s sensually athletic dancers from the New York City Ballet performing intimately personal choreography.
