@The Joyce Theater

Renowned South African choreographer Dada Masilo returns to the stage of The Joyce Theater, 175 8th Avenue, with her latest effervescent work, “The Sacrifice” based on Bausch’s The Rite of Spring. Influenced by the rituals of Tswana dance and blending classic ballet, modern dance and traditional rhythms, the piece is contagiously expressive and moving. While reinventing a fable, it explores themes of acceptance and the constant human battle for freedom and respect with firm sensibility and urgency. From May 23rd thru 28th. Tickets start at $10.

The line-up brings award-buzz documentaries reflecting the world’s crisis such as “We Are Guardians” a Brazilian/North American co-production and “Seven Winters in Tehran” which opens the festival. Then, from June 1 thru 8 it’s time for the Italians to take over with the always entertaining and sophisticated Open Roads: New Italian Cinema made in partnership with Cinecita.
