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.
