Out and Proud: NYC's Joyce Theater Celebrates Pride Week

This week, New York City's Joyce Theater presents two companies addressing LGBTQ+ issues.


MADBOOTS DANCE

The queer, all-male contemporary company, led by Jonathan Campbell and Austin Diaz, makes its Joyce debut. On the program: the premiere of their latest work, GAY GUERILLA, and 2017's MASC, which questions traditional depictions of American manhood. June 19, 21, 23.

Sean Dorsey Dance

Oral history interviews with longtime LGBT survivors of the early AIDS epidemic form the basis of THE MISSING GENERATION, which has been touring the U.S. since its premiere in 2015. Transgender dancer-choreographer Sean Dorsey is joined by a multigenerational cast in what is described as a love letter to these survivors. June 20, 22, 23.

Hamilfilm's Almost Here. These Are the Dance Moments We've Been Thinking About Non-Stop

Broadway may be shut down until 2021, but there's one especially bright light amidst the coronavirus cancelations: the Hamilfilm.

Instead of its originally planned theatrical release in October 2021, the filmed version of Broadway's Hamilton got fast-tracked to a July 3 release on Disney+. Fans can now transform their living room into "the room where it happens" for the $6.99 monthly subscription fee—less than the price of a movie ticket.

Whether you saw the original cast in person or have memorized every single lyric from afar, Hamilton mania is about to hit again. Naturally, it's time to obsess over Andy Blankenbuehler's Tony-winning choreography. Dance is enmeshed in the entire show, but here are a few of our favorite elements to watch out for.
