The Joyce Theater Foundation is proud to present The National Ballet of Canada's production of Christopher Wheeldon's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and to bring this astonishing piece to New York for the first time. Combining a "scenic spectacle of unprecedented extravagance" with "the extraordinary skill, versatility and spirit of the Canadian dancers" (Los Angeles Times), Wheeldon's interpretation of Lewis Carroll's immortal story is a true fantasia of dance, with startling sets and costumes by Tony Award winner Bob Crowley and live musicians performing a sublime score by British composer Joby Talbot.
The long-running Off-Broadway interactive show The Awesome 80s Prom has a new place to cut footloose this spring and summer!
The Awesome 80s Prom is the acclaimed interactive experience in the style of Tony 'n' Tina's Wedding set at Wanaget High's Senior Prom...in 1989! All your favorite characters from your favorite 80s movies are at the prom -- from the Captain of the Football Team to the Asian Exchange Student, from the Geek to the hottie Head Cheerleader -- and they're all competing for Prom King and Queen.
And just like on "American Idol," the audience decides who wins, all while moonwalkin' to great retro hits like "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" and "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go!"
A new comedy by Donna Spector with dance and original music performed by 10 actors/dancers, 14 scarves and one 3-headed dog!

Within a pulsating dance club atmosphere, David Byrne and Fatboy Slim deconstruct the astonishing journey of Filipina First Lady Imelda Marcos retracing her meteoric rise to power and subsequent descent into infamy and disgrace at the end of the People Power Revolution. Here Lies Love is neither a period piece nor a biography, neither a play nor a traditional musical but an immersive theatrical event combining songs influenced by four decades of dance music, adrenaline-fueled choreography, and a remarkable 360-degree scenic and video environment to go beyond Imelda's near-mythic obsession with shoes and explore the tragic consequences of the abuse of power.
Pilobolus Dance Theater steps into The Joyce for its annual season with two rollicking programs that exhibit the signature quirkiness and athleticism that leave audiences dazzled year after year. The roster includes The Inconsistent Pedaler, a New York premiere created in collaboration with writer/director Shira Geffen and Israeli short story, graphic novelist, and film writer Etgar Keret, described by Ira Glass of NPR's This American Life as "one of the best known writers in Israel, the kind of writer people call 'voice of a generation'." A second premiere, On the Nature of Things is also on tap, as is [esc], last season's wildly popular work created with Penn & Teller, along with Megawatt and more favorites from the rich Pilobolus repertory. Having sold out last season's family matinee, the company treats audiences to two family matinees this time around.
Inspired by physical theatre, Psychological Gesture and Butoh technique, classical scenes surrender spoken text to the emergence of subtext expressed through dynamic physical gesture: Chekhov's "The Seagull," Wuthering Heights and Shakespeare's "MacBeth." Enriched by photographic imagery and choral movement.
