Gibney Company New York Season at The Joyce Theater
May 20, 8:00 pm EDT
Performances run May 17-21, 2023
Experience Bliss! Participate in the pleasure of live performance with Gibney Company.
Following its triumphant debut at The Joyce last season, New York’s Gibney Company returns with a powerful program featuring a world premiere; a hardcore minimalist work from Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar; and Johan Inger‘s ode to the joy of dance, Bliss. Co-artistic directors of Vancouver’s Out Innerspace Dance Theatre, Tiffany Tregarthen and David Raymond make their U.S. debut with a new work commissioned for Gibney Company. Through video and light design, Ghost Town gives rise to a hauntingly beautiful world where time is rendered habitable. Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar’s SARA is a minimalist work that manages to be gentle, hardcore, and old fashioned all at the same time. Rounding out the program, Johan Inger’s Bliss is set to jazz pianist Keith Jarrett’s legendary Köln Concert, which is regarded by many to be the epitome of virtuoso improvisation. Inger translates the essence of Jarrett’s iconic music into dance that evokes a state of bliss for audience and dancers alike. An original score by Oscar-nominated composer Ryan Lott of Son Lux provides a sonic thread that ties all three works together.
These performances are the culmination of Gibney Company’s first national tour to nine cities across the U.S. Learn more here.
