“Characterized by vibrant energy, brilliant coherence, and an effortless visual elegance” (The Daily Telegraph), Scotland’s national dance company returns to The Joyce with THIS IS MY BODY…, a double bill that showcases radically contrasting dance styles, equally compelling in emotional impact. Sophie Laplane’s Sibilo featuring an original score by Scottish electronic DJ Alex Manzies, demonstrates a joyful, unrestricted perspective on human nature. A U.S. premiere, Angelin Preljoçaj’s MC 14/22 (Ceci est mon corps) is a meeting of the spiritual and the carnal. Juxtaposing the glorification of strength and the condemnation of brutality, religious allusions collide in this raw and powerful work.
Support for The Joyce’s presentation of international dance provided by the R. Britton Fisher and Family Gift for International Dance.
