Joyce Theater

To kick off its 2016/17 season, The Joyce Theater will be transformed for the NY Quadrille, a sensational two-week engagement created by renowned choreographer Lar Lubovitch and commissioned by The Joyce featuring a specially constructed platform stage designed to create viewing from four sides. Lubovitch invited four contemporary choreographers--Pam Tanowitz, RoseAnne Spradlin, Tere O’Connor, and Loni Landon--to create contemporary dance works on four sides.

For NY Quadrille, Pam Tanowitz Dance presents the world premiere of Sequenzas and Furtive Moments, a new dance in two parts with the first set to “Berio Sequenzas” for violin, viola and trombone, and the second set to “Furtive Movements” by Ted Hearne. Both scores will be performed live by members of The Knights, an orchestral collective based in New York, who previously accompanied Pam Tanowitz Dance at The Joyce. The evening-length work will highlight the unique arrangement of The Joyce Theater for NY Quardille by placing the musicians at various locations throughout the theater. Sequenzas and Furtive Moments will feature former Merce Cunningham dancers Melissa Toogood and Dylan Crossman, alongside four other dancers.

There is a distinguishing wit about Pam Tanowitz’s choreography. Without trying to make her audience laugh, she seems to have a rare instinct for how steps, positions and groupings can be connected or taken apart to inventive, entertaining and surprising effect.
