Coil

“Bravo to Performance Space 122 which (in association with the Joyce Foundation) has quietly come up with an intriguing mix of troupes for this six-day festival” -The New York Times Jan 13, 2006.

BalletLab
Amplification
Presented in association with The Joyce Theater

“A raw and powerful work…Amplification is not for the faint-hearted or the prudish.”
-Jane Howard, Melbourne Herald Sun

In their highly anticipated U.S. premiere, Australia’s foremost contemporary dance company unleashes unsettling work utilizing inventive media, fiercely rigorous dance and twisted humor. In Amplification, choreographer Phillip Adams deconstructs a car accident to examine the thresholds of the human body with both scientific fascination and morbid curiosity.

LeeSaar The Company
Herd of Bulls

“…more a delicate martial-arts demonstration than a boot-camp drill or a military stampede. Its exploration of animal instinct ranges past the violent and murderous impulses of the body to the sensual and seductive.”
-The New Yorker

Saar Harari charts an intrepid and haunting journey through violence and its emotional aftermath. Herd of Bulls returns to P.S. 122 after an acclaimed October 2005 premiere. With turbulent grace, visceral impact and arresting precision, four dancers manifest one soldier’s attempt to reclaim his humanity.

Adrienne Truscott
They Will Use the Highways

“A fresh, engaging voice. Bring on her next eruption.“-The New York Times

Founding member of the Obie and Bessie Award-winning LAVA dance company and one-half of the Wau-Wau Sisters, Adrienne Truscott makes a U-turn back to P.S. 122 to continue a free association begun along the New Jersey Turnpike. A madcap existential exercise unfolds as Truscott and collaborators elaborate on the downright weird and ephemeral nature of creating dance.

Helen Herbertson
Strike 1

“An astonishing piece [with] an astute understanding of what triggers our senses to play tricks on us.”- The Herald, Glasgow

Strike1 provides a portal into a strange and shadowy world, a world of apparitions, through an intense language of feverish action and mesmerizing imagery. Helen Herbertson’s movement is subtly sculpted by Ben Cobham’s lighting. Together, the award-winning collaborators deftly blur the lines between reality and fantasy and delve into the realm of the imagination.
