To kick off its 2016/17 season, The Joyce Theater will be transformed for the NY Quadrille, a sensational two-week engagement created by renowned choreographer Lar Lubovitch and commissioned by The Joyce featuring a specially constructed platform stage designed to create viewing from four sides. Following through with the spirit of “four,” Lubovitch has selected four exciting choreographers—Pam Tanowitz, RoseAnne Spradlin, Tere O’Connor, and Loni Landon to create contemporary dance works on four sides.

Pam Tanowitz’s dances are celebrated for sharp energy and unpredictable rhythms. This contemporary evening features the eccentric, striking Heaven on One’s Head, which was named one of the best dances of 2014, and the story progresses as if in a dream of glittering surfaces, described as a love letter to romantic ballets. New York City-based ensemble FLUX Quartet performs live for both dances, alongside a commissioned electronic score by Dan Siegler.

the story progresses as if in a dream of glittering surfaces is a love letter to romantic ballets. The new dance explores performing rituals, mining codified techniques in an unusually layered contemporary collage. Imbued with rich, mysterious undertones, the work plays with narrative and abstraction, formality and immediacy, creating a progression of images that dissolve and reappear throughout the work’s path. The dance is set to a new electronic score by longtime collaborator Dan Siegler and a score by Julia Wolfe
