New York City's Joyce Theater will kick off its fall 2019 programming with a new dance piece from the company A.I.M, choreographed by founder Kyle Abraham and danced by American Ballet Theatre principal dancer Misty Copeland. A.I.M's engagement at the Joyce will also feature duets and company works, as well as a solo danced by Abraham, accompanied by a live gospel choir.

Tony-nominated choreographer Camille A. Brown (Choir Boy, Once on This Island) has two projects at the Joyce this season: a celebration of tap history titled And Still You Must Swing, in collaboration with dance collective Dormeshia, Derrick K. Grant, and Jason Samuels Smith; followed by Mr. TOL E. RAncE, the piece that launched the choreographer’s dance theatre trilogy on black identity.

The Joyce will also welcome a number of international companies for special engagements. Included among them: the return of Companhia de Dança's Deborah Colker with her show Cão Sem Plumas (Dog Without Feathers); the foot-stomping South American cowboys of Che Malambo; Shantala Shivalingappa, embodying the rich history of South Indian dance in Akasha, a work of five solos accompanied by live musicians; and Soledad Barrio + Noche Flamenca in Entre Tú y Yo (Between You and Me) featuring some of Spain’s top flamenco dancers.
