The intimate space, once a cinema, is a fine setting for dance. Of the 472 seats at the Joyce, there’s not a single bad one. Companies and choreographers who present work here, including Ballet Hispanico, David Parsons and Doug Varone, tend to be more conventional than experimental. The Joyce also hosts out-of-town crowd-pleasers like Pilobolus Dance Theatre. During the summer, when many theaters are dark, the Joyce continues its programming. At the Joyce Soho, emerging companies present work nearly every weekend. • Other location: Joyce Soho, 155 Mercer St between W Houston and Prince Sts (212-431-9233). Subway: B, D, F, M to Broadway–Lafayette St; N, R to Prince St; 6 to Bleecker St. $15–$20. Cash only.
What's on at Joyce Theater
Folk & ethnic
- Critics' pick
If anyone can invoke the tragedy of Sophocles's Antigone, it is the stunning Soledad Barrio. She and her flamenco company perform "Noche Flamenca y Antigona," a program of movement and music with excerpts inspired by the classic play.
Ballroom & latin
The tango company—based in both Lyon and Buenos Aires—performs Nuit Blanche (Sleepless Night), an evening-length work choreographed by co–artistic directors Claudia Codega and Esteban Moreno with live musical accompaniment.
