Joyce Theater, Pilobolus
Pilobolus Dance Theatre checks into the The Joyce for its annual four-week season, this year from tonight, July 16 – August 11. Renowned for its ingeniously intricate and athletic creative collaborations, Pilobolus will present three New York premieres over two separate programs. Premieres include a yet-to-be-titled collaboration with renowned choreographer Sidi Larbi Cheraoui; Azimuth, a group work created in collaboration with juggler/physicist extraordinaire Michael Moschen; and Skyscrapers, a video directed by filmmaker Trish Sie, set to the OK GO song by the same name.
Tickets for Pilobolus at The Joyce range from $10-$59 (subject to change) and can be purchased by calling JoyceCharge at 212-242-0800 or online at joyce.org. The Joyce Theater is located at 175 Eighth Avenue (at 19th Street).
COLLABORATION WITH SIDI LARBI CHERKAOUI: From the Pilobolus studio in Connecticut comes a new collaboration with the internationally renowned choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui. The result is a futuristic dance for six performers that takes place in a mirrored world somewhere between "Tron" and "Metropolis." Deep emotions punctuate the intoxicating rhythms of the machine in this emotional journey through a time that seems yet to come.
SKYSCRAPERS: For this piece, Pilobolus once again joins Trish Sie (co-creator of last year's Grammy-nominated Pilobolus/OK Go video and live dance, All Is Not Lost) to perform Sie's brilliant new OK Go video Skyscrapers as a work for the live stage. Set against the gritty, saturated colors of LA's Eastside streets, Skyscrapers explores the melancholy, understated elegance of the tango as quintessential street dance, drenched in overtones of love, romance and loss.
Other works in Program A are Gnomen, Duet and Megawatt.
AZIMUTH: The Pilobolus collaboration with MacArthur "Genius" Award-winning master juggler Michael Moschen turns the act of juggling on its side. Uniting the underlying spirit of Pilobolus' work-support, humanity, connection-with his own fascination with the emotional and physical properties that govern human interaction, Moschen investigates the geometries of the universe through objects that roll in harmony with the dancers and the celestial machine. Azimuth, an astrology term referring to the arc of the horizon, was choreographed by Renee Jaworski, Michael Tracy (both of Pilobolus) and Michael Moschen.
This program also includes Pseudopodia, Korokoro, All is Not Lost and Sweet Purgatory.
