John Jasperse, described by The New York Times as both “dryly sophisticated and cerebral” and “deeply silly and moving and smart,” returns to The Joyce to present Hinterland. A varied group of dancers, including Jasperse, comes together with a commissioned score by Hahn Rowe, to build a micro-community, where dance is both celebration and a refuge from the wreckage of culture and history. Hinterland is performed by DeAngelo Blanchard, Eleanor Hullihan, Jasperse, Mina Nishimura, and Antonio Ramos, with costumes by Kota Yamazaki and lighting by Joe Levasseur.

This engagement is a part of the NY Quadrille, conceived, designed, and curated by Lar Lubovitch. During this festival, the Joyce stage is transformed into a large platform that allows audiences to view cutting-edge work from one of four different sides.
Hinterland was commissioned and created, in part, with the support of The Joyce’s Stephen and Cathy Weinroth Fund for New Work and its Artist Residency Center, made possible by lead funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Howard Gilman Foundation, LuEsther T. Mertz Charitable Trust, and Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
