Ballet Hispánico, the nation's premier Latino dance organization, brings its bold and eclectic brand of contemporary dance to the Joyce Theater with two World Premieres from April 10-15, 2018. Tickets start at $10 and are on sale now at

Both Ballet Hispánico World Premieres were inspired by Spanish literary icon Federico Garcia Lorca. In his fourth piece with the Company, acclaimed choreographer Gustavo Ramírez Sansano, who recently premiered a new work for Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, delves into the life of the celebrated playwright during his time in New York City in 1929. In Waiting for Pepe, Carlos Pons Guerra, a Spanish-born choreographer whose works have been performed in the United Kingdom and throughout Europe, reimagines Lorca's 1936 play, The House of Bernanda Alba, infusing the tale of family intrigue with the theatricality of Spanish language films and telenovelas.

The Joyce program will also include the critically praised Línea Recta (2016) by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa, one of today's most sought-after choreographers. A powerful and resonant work, Línea Recta explores an intriguing aspect of flamenco dance: the conspicuous absence of physical contact between dancers. While maintaining the integrity and hallmark passion of the genre, Lopez Ochoa imagines an original and explosive movement language premised upon the theme of communication between the sexes and performed to an original guitar composition by Eric Vaarzon Morel. Línea Recta was commissioned in part by the Apollo Theater and Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival.

All three works in the program came to fruition through Ballet Hispánico's Instituto Coreográfico, an innovative choreography lab for Latino dance makers launched in 2010 by Artistic Director & CEO Eduardo Vilaro. Mr. Vilaro created Instituto to foster a dialogue about the Latino experience and to express the complexity of the diaspora through dance. This innovative learning laboratory provides both emerging choreographers and dance filmmakers with a professional and supportive environment to explore their heritage and to develop their craft.

Tickets start at $10 and are available for purchase in person at the Joyce Theater Box Office, by phone at (212) 242-0800, or online at Ticket prices are subject to change.

Anna is an evening-length contemporary dance-theater performance by choreographer Dusan Týnek inspired by Tolstoy's classic Russian novel, Anna Karenina. An exploration of love and infidelity within the structures of stifling social mores, Anna side steps a conventional re-telling of the novel, focusing instead on the essence of its characters and their situations.
