***Featuring Perfume Genius LIVE in concert with their new debut album***
Experience a spiritual unraveling of romantic decay with the New York premiere of The Sun Still Burns Here, which blends contemporary dance and live, soul-baring pop-rock. The combination of Perfume Genius’s “glorious, inventive, shape-shifting music“ (The Guardian) with the exacting craft and raw potency of Kate Wallich’s movement will “undeniably lure you and immerse you somewhere far from the workaday world“ (The Seattle Times). Wallich, who has been named in Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch,” brings her Seattle-based troupe The YC to The Joyce for the first time.
Curtain Chat: Thu, Nov 14
The Joyce’s presentation of Kate Wallich + The YC X Perfume Genius is a HARKNESS FIRST Joyce Theater debut, generously supported by The Harkness Foundation for Dance. Additional support provided by The Joyce’s Young Leaders Circle (YLC) Contemporaries. The Sun Still Burns Here was co-commissioned and created, in part, with the support of The Joyce’s Artist Residency Center, made possible by lead funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Howard Gilman Foundation, LuEsther T. Mertz Charitable Trust, and Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
