Under the artistic direction of Emily Molnar, Ballet BC deftly pushes the boundaries of contemporary dance with intelligence, passion, and artistry. For its first appearance at The Joyce in over 15 years, the company performs a bold and innovative program of work by three internationally acclaimed female choreographers. Emily Molnar's 16+ a room is a study of time, transition, and stillness, where the space between is as important as the space occupied. Sharon Eyal showcases her signature style with the raw, unexpected beauty of Bill. Celebrated choreographer, former Ballet BC company member, and founder of Kidd Pivot, Crystal Pite explores themes of acceptance and loss with Solo Echo.

Home draws upon ritualistic and traditional processes to elucidate the concept of home through interpersonal encounters, environments and the pursuit of self and collective understanding. In these two NYC premieres, BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance and BC+A incorporate interactive set pieces in a pre-show exhibition and mid-show interlude as well as in two distinct works, enabling our image of home to become amorphous while also serving as a thematic thread upon which we establish community. Scenic design elements, such as commonly seen furniture, supported frames, and micro-sanctuaries, are interwoven into kinetic movement languages to portray the loss, challenge and celebration that occur within individuals and family. Through continuously evolving structures that transform the space and the complex relationships developed amongst the performers, we come to understand that our concept of home is constantly shifting as we move through life.

The piece includes a progressive series of solos and duets punctuated by group sections that magnify the personal experience into a shared one.
