The British choreographer Wayne McGregor’s dance company will open the Joyce Theater’s spring 2018 season, the theater announced on Wednesday.
Company Wayne McGregor (Feb. 27-March 3) will perform the New York premiere of his evening-length “Autobiography,” inspired by the sequence of Mr. McGregor’s genome. (Mr. McGregor will also choreograph a new staging of “The Rite of Spring” for American Ballet Theater this spring.)
Other international companies include Dada Masilo/The Dance Factory, from South Africa, which put a twist on “Swan Lake” at the Joyce last year and returns with a new take on “Giselle” (April 3-8). Later that month, Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève will perform “Une Autre Passion” (April 24-29), an abstract staging of Bach’s St. Matthew Passion by the Swedish choreographer Pontus Lidberg.
In May, Kyle Abraham’s company, A.I.M., will return to the Joyce with a mixed bill that includes Mr. Abraham’s first solo in nearly a decade, “Indy” (May 1-6), a new work commissioned by the theater.
Among other returning companies are Brian Brooks Dance (March 14-18) and the Sarasota Ballet (Aug. 14-19), which will perform a repertory program.
Previously announced appearances for the coming Joyce season include Stephen Petronio Company, which will present its fourth edition of Bloodlines (March 20-25), and the Lar Lubovitch Dance Company, which will celebrate its 50th anniversary April 17-22.
