The Joyce 2023 Summer Season includes:
June 20-July 2
After a triumphant national tour, SW!NG OUT returns to the place where it all started with an encore run at The Joyce. Interdisciplinary artist Caleb Teicher and their brain trust of collaborators, Evita Arce, LaTasha Barnes and Nathan Bugh, bring a wildly talented cast of dancers and musicians back home for the first return engagement of this Joyce Theater Production. A New York Times’ Critic’s Pick, SW!NG OUT celebrates the unbridled joy of Lindy Hop and the excitement of the artists’ distinct improvisational styles—generating a different show each night. Music by the Eyal Vilner Big Band complements the social dance experience with irresistible rhythms that will make you want to dance along. Welcoming audiences into the fold, each performance concludes with an on-stage jam session with the company!
The rebellious dance company Pilobolus returns to The Joyce for the conclusion of its Big Five-OH! tour, bringing New York premieres and fan favorites as the Company propels itself into the next half century of “sensory-exploding performances” (Huffington Post). Now under the leadership of long-time members and creative partners Renée Jaworski and Matt Kent, the Company will present three New York premieres, featuring collaborations with Darlene Kascak of the Schaghticoke Tribal Nation, Jad Abumrad (composer and founder of Radiolab, Dolly Parton’s America), choreographer Madison Olandt, and former Pilobolus dancers Derion Loman and Gaspard Louis. Pilobolus’s signature aptitude for combining wit, sensuality and stunning physical acumen is sure to thrill and surprise audiences.

Live music from the MMDG Music Ensemble accompanies works from across the decades that feature Morris’ distinctive wit and devotion to music.
