Update regarding this performance

The health and safety of our patrons and staff is of the utmost importance to us at The Joyce. In accordance with governmental recommendations regarding large gatherings, as well as the ongoing disruptions of rehearsal schedules that dance companies are facing, we are cancelling the June 24-27, 2020 performances of Christopher Williams.

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

  1. Donate your ticket to The Joyce
  2. Request a refund of your ticket purchase
  3. Request a refund and donate to Christopher Williams dance projects

If we do not hear from you by the scheduled opening on June 24, we will automatically refund your tickets.

Our Box Office phone lines are very busy at this time. For the best service, please use this survey we created 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.

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. 

Hailed for his “extraordinary feats of visual imagination” (New York Times), Christopher Williams offers a program of his own original, queer versions of legendary works by the Ballets Russes. In Williams’ reimagining of Nijinsky’s The Afternoon of a Faun, acclaimed New York City Ballet principal dancer Taylor Stanley stars as the Faun and performs the title role in excerpts from his in-progress evening-length work, Narcissus, which also features his fellow principal dancer Russell Janzen. A cast of outstanding dancers join Stanley and fellow New York City Ballet dancer Davide Riccardo in his all-male version of the ballet Les Slyphides.


The Joyce’s presentation of Chirstopher Williams Dance is a HARKNESS FIRST Joyce Theater debut, generously supported by The Harkness Foundation for Dance.
