Smuin Contemporary Ballet

Tue Jul 9 - Sun Jul 14

Celebrating its 30th anniversary, San Francisco-based Smuin Contemporary Ballet returns to The Joyce with a triple bill of original commissions each making their New York premiere. Val Caniparoli’s Tutto Eccetto il Lavandino is “an exacting neoclassical ballet that shows off the company’s chops” (San Francisco Chronicle). Renaissance, a stirring work by Smuin’s incoming Artistic Director Amy Seiwert, honors the power of collective action, with music by the Kitka Women’s Vocal Ensemble. Rounding out the program is Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s Tupelo Tornado, Smuin’s newest premiere that takes inspiration from the life and lore of Elvis Presley in an eclectic portrait of the iconic idol’s clashes with fame.
