Event Description

Last Touch First, one of the most intriguing productions on the Joyce spring roster, was created by world-renowned choreographer Jiří Kylián and dancer Michael Schumacher for the 2008 Holland Dance Festival. Based on Kylián's Last Touch, created for Nederlands Dans Theater in 2003, this haunting hour-long work, performed in profoundly slow motion, "eschews physical virtuosity for control, subtlety and timing." (The Guardian,) as it penetrates the desperation, madness, and isolation involved in the "persistent pursuit of the hopeless." Ballettanz
