The Joyce Theater presents UNLEASHED

Netta Yerushalmy – Helga And The Three Sailors

“Sometimes everything about a dance performance seems right,” proclaimed The New Yorker about Helga And The Three Sailors, which had a successful run at Danspace Project in 2014. Now choreographer Netta Yerushalmy brings back her mesmerizing piece – for one performance only – to Joyce Unleashed. Featuring music composed and performed live by Judith Berkson, Yerushalmy and dancers Marc Crousillat, Amanda Kmett’Pendry and Sarah Lifson build on layers of time, color, shape and space to present a work that is both inspired by and a challenge to the choreographer’s personal history.


Hillel Kogan – We Love Arabs

A “true masterpiece by all measures” (The Jerusalem Post), We Love Arabs is a satirical dance theater piece that explores the ethnic divide between Arabs and Jews living in Israel. Telling the story of a Jewish choreographer (Kogan) and an Arab dancer (Adi Boutros) working together to create a piece with a message of co-existence and peace, this award-winning duet uses everything from humor to hummus to address the anxiety, fear and prejudice fostered by decades of conflict.
