Registration coming soon!

Join STAYCEE PEARL dance project & Soy Sos for a showing and discussion around their forthcoming work, CIRCLES, which will exist as both a stage performance and dance film. Co-commissioned by Kelly Strayhorn Theater, The Joyce Theater (New York), and the National Performance Network, CIRCLES is a new evening-length dance performance highlighting Staycee Pearl’s unique perspective as a mid-career Black female choreographer. For this showing, the artists present a work in progress excerpt from the film version of CIRCLES, and included responses from invited speakers (to be announced at a later date). CIRCLES will have its world premiere in October 2021 at the August Wilson African American Cultural Center, co-presented by KST. More details coming soon!


CIRCLES is a National Performance Network (NPN) Creation & Development Fund Project co-commissioned by Kelly Strayhorn Theater, The Joyce Theater (New York), and NPN. More information: www.npnweb.org.
