The fall ’14/winter ’15 performance season launches September 9 with the New York premiere of Christopher Wheeldon’s extravagant production of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, danced by the magnificent dancers of the National Ballet of Canada at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center. Ballet will also be highlighted throughout The Joyce’s season in its landmark Chelsea home, with audience favorites like Pacific Northwest Ballet, and Aspen Santa Fe Ballet on the roster. Especially exciting performances by principals and soloists from the renowned Royal Danish Ballet will follow the ever-delightful Les Ballets de Trockadero de Monte Carlo, returning for its bi-annual holiday engagement. The season has an international focus, too, with the return of Soledad Barrio & Noche Flamenca, from Spain, Nederlands Dans Theater 2, and the New York debut of Cia. Unión Tanguera, with roots in both Argentina and France.
With companies hailing from four continents, a wide variety of dance styles await you at The Joyce Theater this spring and summer. This season is a ballet lover’s dream—over ten companies rooted in the ballet tradition will grace the stage to perform pieces ranging from the classical work of Sarasota Ballet to the contemporary worlds of Jessica Lang Dance, BalletX, L.A. Dance Project, Ballet BC and Pennsylvania Ballet. In contrast to this balletic bunch, the fiery Juan Siddi Flamenco Santa Fe makes its New York debut and 2015 MacArthur ‘Genius Grant’ winner Michelle Dorrance is on tap, too. Literally!
