Under the artistic direction of Murray Louis and Alberto del Saz, the work of Alwin Nikolais comes back to The Joyce for the first time since the 2010 worldwide centennial celebration of this master choreographer. "A true dance luminary, a choreographer, designer, composer of electronic music and a pioneer of multi-media dance" (The New York Times), Nikolais will be honored with a program performed by The Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company that will include Tensile Involvement (1955), Gallery (1978), Mechanical Organ III (1983), and Crucible (1985), some of the most renowned works that he created during his long and successful career.
Under the direction of former Royal Ballet dancers Michael Nunn OBE and William Trevitt OBE, the all-male, contemporary dance ensemble BalletBoyz "encourages dancers, inspires audiences, thinks with flair and ingenuity" (Financial Times), and sells out houses around the world. The troupe arrives at The Joyce with the New York premiere of Christopher Wheeldon's Mesmerics, a Joyce co-commission, and The Murmuring, a new work commissioned from Alexander Whitley, former affiliate choreographer of The Royal Ballet and currently a New Wave Associate at Sadler's Wells.
This year's lineup includes Step Afrika! featuring stepping dancers led by the artistic director Mfoniso Akpan, Nai-Ni Chin Dance Company performing a Lunar New Year Celebration, and Moscow Festival Ballet's Romeo and Juliet / Carmen Suite.

Cinderella, choreographed by Jean-Christophe Maillot, strips the classic fairy tale of its sugar and explores the untold story of Cinderella's mother, a vision of lost happiness, who returns from the dead in the form of a fairy godmother. It is a poignant meditation on love and loss, in which the departed shape the future of those left behind. It is also a funny, incisive take on a society crammed full of artifice.

"Some of the dance steps, phrases and constructions by choreographer Pam Tanowitz are among the finest being made anywhere today," declared The New York Times about Heaven on One's Head when the work premiered at The Joyce in 2014. A 2009 Bessie Award winner and a "clear sighted modernist" (The New Yorker), Tanowitz brings Heaven back to The Joyce along with a Joyce-commissioned world premiere, an abstract love letter to romantic ballets set to a new electronic score by Dan Siegler. The evening features live music by the FLUX Quartet and displays Tanowitz's distinct vision for reimagining classical ballet vocabulary in an ultra-post-modern framework.

Maurice Hines Tappin' Thru Life is a swinging, song and dance musical that celebrates the astonishing showmanship of one of the last great tap dancers of a by-gone era still working today and whose collaborators were a jaw-dropping, who's who of theatre, music, film and television.

Hot off their world tour, Untapped! (New Vic 2011) deftly defies tap conventions for a dance expression that's all its own.

Joined by a beatboxer and a live band, this charismatic crew will have you tapping along to this raucous reinvention of rhythm.
