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.
Curtain Chat: Tue, Sep 25
Master Class: Thu, Oct 4
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 is co-commissioned by The Joyce Theater Foundation’s Stephen and Cathy Weinroth Fund for New Work and Lumberyard.
Development of the work was made possible, in part, through generous support from the Howard Gilman Foundation, the Doris Duke Artist Awards, the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the New York State Council On the Arts, the James E. Robison Foundation, The Harkness Foundation for Dance and the Sarah Lawrence College Ellen Schloss Flamm and Family Endowed Fund for Faculty Research and Development.
Developmental residency support for the creation of this work was provided by Mount Tremper Arts’ Watershed Lab Residency through the support of the National Endowment for the Arts; a White Oak Dance Residency through the support of the Howard Gilman Foundation; The Joyce Theater Foundation’s 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; Yaddo; and Sarah Lawrence College.
This piece was also rehearsed at CPR- Center for Performance Research, the Mark Morris Dance Center, the Center at West Park Presbyterian Church, Eden’s Expressway, Avenue C Studios, Gibney Dance Center, Bronxdale High School, Alvin Ailey Studios, Brooklyn Arts Exchange and Sarah Lawrence College.
