Joyce Theater

Over the last decade, acclaimed choreographer Camille A. Brown has created a trio of essential works redefining Black identity within our evolving cultural landscape. In a historic partnership between the Apollo Theater and The Joyce Theater, for the first time, all three works in The Trilogy can be seen in immediate conversation with one another.

The Company returns with the Bessie-nominated BLACK GIRL: Linguistic Play. Hailed as “50 minutes of pure dance heaven” (The San Francisco Chronicle), this ode to Black girl creativity draws on the ingenious rhythmic play of their games and dances. The Bessie Award-winning Mr. TOL E. RAncE is a comic, yet searing interrogation of “the mask of survival” - questioning what happens to the human spirit behind the mask.
