Boasting a rich, century-long history and twenty-two “exceptionally supple ballet trained dancers” (The New York Times) from diverse nationalities, the Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève holds a unique place in the world of contemporary dance. For its return to The Joyce Theater, the Swiss company performs an evening-length work created by Israeli-born choreographer Emmanuel Gat, who uses the music of J.S. Bach as inspiration.
This performance is supported by The R. Britton Fisher and Family Gift for International Dance, with lead support for accessible and inclusive programming provided by MetLife Foundation.
This American tour is made possible by Pro Helvetia and JTI.
Sat. 2p.m. & 8p.m.
