RIOULT Dance NY
presents Two Programs
World Premiere of Cassandra’s Curse
NYC Premiere of Polymorphous
featuring Guest Artist Kathleen Turner
The Joyce Theater
June 21-26, 2016
RIOULT Dance NY, a leading American modern dance company with a classic sensibility, returns to The Joyce Theater from June 21-26, 2016 with eight performances featuring World and New York City Premieres. Tickets start at $10 and are on sale now at www.joyce.org.
An established name in modern dance with a reputation for performing sensual, articulate, and exquisitely musical works, RIOULT Dance NY performs two programs. WOMEN ON THE EDGE…Unsung Heroines of the Trojan War examines the role of women in times of conflict and features the World Premiere of Cassandra’s Curse, set to live music. The second program is distinguished by the New York City premiere of Polymorphous, a piece exploring the subjectivity of perception through movement and technology; Duets, a suite of magnificent duets drawn from some of Pascal Rioult’s finest dances; and two repertory works. Kathleen Turner joins the company as narrator for performances on June 21, June 23 and the evening of June 25.
“Kathleen Turner has followed my work for a while now and I was looking forward to the day I could collaborate with her. She is a tremendous talent,” said Pascal Rioult, artistic director of RIOULT Dance NY. “She is perfect for this project. An experienced stage actress who will bring great weight to the role of narrator in these pieces inspired by Greek tragedies, she is a powerful women herself and is an exemplary model of strength and resilience―the general theme of the triptych.”
Special events during the company’s Joyce Theater engagement include a Family Matinee on Saturday, June 25 with $10 tickets available for children aged 6-14; a Curtain Chat following the Thursday, June 23 performance with members of the company, as well as a gala immediately following the performance on June 22 at Studio 450, 450 W. 31st Street, NYC. Call 212-398-5901 for gala tickets.
