“This one-night only performance brings dancers off the pages of the newly released coffee table book Movement at the Still Point: An Ode to Dance and onto The Joyce stage to celebrate the power of expression, in movement and stillness.
Journey through a multi-disciplinary program of ballet, modern, tap, hip hop, contemporary, tango, and musical theater with stars from New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Broadway, Martha Graham Dance Company and more. This eclectic bill of world premieres and fan favorites capture the dynamism and the energy of mediums of both dance and photography.
At the depth of the COVID-19 pandemic, world-renowned celebrity portrait photographer Mark Mann turned his lens from luminaries such as Barack Obama, Jennifer Anniston, Bradley Cooper, Margot Robbie and Rhianna to the the top dancers in the New York City community… Movement at the Still Point: An Ode to Dance captures 142 artists whose impact and legacy span many generations and disciplines. Featuring photos of Misty Copeland, Andy Blankenbuehler, Tiler Peck, Chita Rivera, Sara Mearns, James Whiteside, Carmen De Lavallade, Kyle Abraham and many others, these photos show the true strength in beauty and resolve during a time of incredible uncertainty.” – Joyce Theatre
