Why We're Stoked for Dresden Semperoper Ballet's NYC Performances

The dancers of Dresden Semperoper Ballet have a reputation for applying exceptional classical technique to challenging contemporary choreography with aplomb. Audiences at the company's New York City appearances can expect a whirlwind of impressive, emotionally stirring dancing. It's a great opportunity to catch works by British choreographer David Dawson, whose fluid, hyperphysical movement vocabulary turns elegiac in On the Nature of Daylight (score by Max Richter) and delightfully virtuosic in 5 (excerpted from his Giselle). Also on the program are Stijn Celis' Vertigo Maze and a new ballet from company member and native New Yorker Joseph Hernandez. Oct. 31–Nov. 4. joyce.org.
