Joyce Theater

For over 50 years, Cullberg has brought cutting-edge contemporary repertoire to Sweden. Celebrating its Joyce debut, the company brings Horse, the solos, a new work by Deborah Hay, a pioneer in the field of postmodern dance. Created while in lockdown, the dancers worked onsite in Stockholm with Hay directing its creation from her home in Austin, TX. What emerged was a seven-member solo set to music by acclaimed composer Graham Reynolds. “Movements are spare, disorienting, yet mysteriously human in their application within an inextricably bound space,” says Hay. “Horse relies on an intuitive understanding of risk, efficiency, and survival.”

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