tanzmainz, the contemporary dance company of Staatstheater Mainz in Germany, makes its Joyce debut with choreographer Sharon Eyal’s Soul Chain. A work about love, longing, and the great loneliness that lives within, Soul Chain creates mesmerizing rhythmic unison, rooted in the soundscape of electronic composer Ori Lichtik. In Eyal’s signature style, created with the dancers of tanzmainz, the Der Faust award-winning production juxtaposes the group and the individual, revealing the intricate variations that arise in the pursuit of harmony and the power love holds over us.
