Performance Update: Ayodele Casel: Chasing Magic

In effect Tuesday, January 4, 2022 - Sunday, January 9, 2022

While our vaccine protocols and negative PCR testing allowed us to safely move forward with previous performances this season, break-through COVID-19 cases were detected this week in Ayodele Casel: Chasing Magic.

In prioritizing the health and safety of our audiences, staff, and performers, we have made the difficult decision to postpone Ayodele Casel: Chasing Magic from Tuesday, January 4-9, 2022 to a date that has yet to be decided. In lieu of live performances, we are happy to offer on-demand streaming of Ayodele Casel: Chasing Magic from Friday, January 7 at 6pm ET through Sunday, January 23 at 11:59pm ET. For more information, visit here.

We apologize for the disappointment and inconvenience this causes our ticket holders, however, we trust that audiences will agree that safety must be at the forefront of our return to live performances. We will continue to monitor the situation and make decisions about the remaining performances with the safety of our staff, patrons, and artists being of utmost importance.

The Joyce is providing current ticket holders to the cancelled performances with the following options: 

  • Donate your ticket to The Joyce Theater
  • Request a refund of your ticket purchase


The Joyce Box Office phone lines are very busy at this time. For the best service, please use this survey to select your choice from the options above. We appreciate your patience in processing these requests.

In these rare and difficult times, we truly appreciate your investment in New York City’s rich arts and culture organizations. As a valued member of our Joyce family, you can understand the financial impact of these changes on our dance community at large. We ask you to consider donating your ticket as support during this time.

The Joyce encourages you to take the next step and support Ayodele Casel. Together, we can all keep dancing! 

As we are monitoring the situation, we will continue to seek guidance and best practices from the appropriate health authorities and communicate any updates to our patrons. Please visit our website for any immediate updates regarding performances. 

Thank you for your patience and support, and we look forward to welcoming you back to our Chelsea home soon.
