Doug Varone and Dancers @the Joyce
May 31-Jun 5 (various showtimes)

Doug Varone and Dancers returns to The Joyce celebrating its 35th year with the New York premiere of Somewhere (2019) and Varone's masterwork from 1993, Rise. Somewhere reimagines Leonard Bernstein's timeless West Side Story by stripping the orchestral score of its narrative connotations. The result: pure choreographic vibrancy, brimming with nuance and emotional heft generated by the musical structure. In Rise, dancers take over the stage in swirls of controlled chaos, with composer John Adam's Fearful Symmetries underlying each step. Varone's "highly charged, physically exciting choreography" reinforces the complexity of the human spirit, deeming his inventive body of work "a rarity among his generation" (The New York Times).
