Joyce Theater

Time Out says

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.

Rennie Harris Puremovement: Rome & Jewels

  • Hip-hop

Hip-hop dance auteur Rennie Harris celebrates the 30th anniversary of his company, Puremovement American Street Dance Theater, by revisiting their award-winning 1990s breakout work: a version of Romeo and Juliet, set in modern Philadelphia, that adds racial and economic dimensions to Shakespeare's tale of doomed young lovers from warring families. 

Hubbard Street Dance Chicago

  • Contemporary and experimental

The popular Chicago repertory troupe, under the guidance of new artistic director Linda-Denise Fisher-Harrell, returns to its NYC pied-à-terre at the Joyce Theatre for the first time since the pandemic shutdown. The program comprises Ohad Naharin's B/olero, Spenser Theberge's duet Ne Me Quitte Pas, a solo from Kyle Abraham’s The Bystander and two recent addition to the company's repertoire: Amy Hall Garner's As the Wind Blows and Aszure Barton's Busk.

Versa-Style Dance Company: Freemind Freestyle

  • Contemporary and experimental

The Los Angeles company Versa-Style, led by Leigh "Breeze-Lee" Foaad and Jackie "Miss Funk" Lopez, makes its Joyce debut in a show that merges street dance styles like hip hop and krump with Afro-Latin traditions such as salsa, cumbia and merengue. True to its title, the show gives its dancers space to express their own interpretations of freedom through improvisation.

Batsheva Dance Company: Hora

  • Contemporary and experimental

Israel's world-class Batsheva Dance Company, led by Ohad Naharin, goes green in its latest Joyce engagement: a full-length work about individuality and collective identity that continues to explore the possibilities of the elastic dance language that Naharin calls Gaga. The electronic score is arranged by Iso Tomita.
