Friday, May 9 at 8pm and 10pm

Saturday, May 10 at 7pm & 9pm

Performances take place at 3-Legged Dog, 80 Greenwich Street, New York, NY

Choreographer Zoe Scofield and video artist Juniper Shuey are the creative team behind zoe | juniper, the acclaimed Seattle-based company. In BEGINAGAIN, the duo explores new technological methods for setting and triggering their raw tableaux of movement and stage design as a means of examining startling new ways to see and be seen. This engagement is co-produced by The Joyce Theater Foundation and 3-Legged Dog.

SuperGroup's The Tent Has Been Pulled Down

Performances take place at The Invisible Dog Art Center, 51 Bergen Street, Brooklyn, NY

Blurring the boundaries between dance, theater, and performance art, the Minneapolis-basedSuperGroup makes its New York debut with The Tent Has Been Pulled Down, an evening-length work featuring the collective's three artists (with guest appearances by their mothers). Pregnant with contradictions, the piece unfolds in a world of text, sound, and evolving movement scores. This engagement is co-presented by The Joyce Theater Foundation and The Invisible Dog Art Center.

Laurie Berg's The Afterlife

Thursday, May 15 at 9pm

Friday, May 16 at 9pm

Saturday, May 17 at 9pm

Performances take place at The Invisible Dog Art Center, 51 Bergen Street, Brooklyn, NY

Laurie Berg's choreographic work is notable for its idiosyncratic narratives and physicality. InThe Afterlife, she focuses on the concept of celebrity. Boundaries between high art and cult-pop-culture dissolve as ghosts of established performance icons transform into agents of active impulse. Co-presented by The Joyce Theater Foundation and The Invisible Dog Art Center.
