Pam Tanowitz Dance

Description

“Some of the dance steps, phrases and constructions by choreographer Pam Tanowitz are among the finest being made anywhere today,” declared The New York Times about Heaven on One’s Head when the work premiered at The Joyce in 2014. A 2009 Bessie Award winner and a “clear sighted modernist” (The New Yorker), Tanowitz brings Heaven back to The Joyce along with the story progresses as if in a dream of glittering surfaces, a Joyce-commissioned world premiere, an abstract love letter to romantic ballets set to music by Julia Wolfe and a new electronic score by Dan Siegler. The evening features live music by the FLUX Quartet and displays Tanowitz’s distinct vision for reimagining classical ballet vocabulary in an ultra-post-modern framework.
