ENTERTAINMENT

The next sinewy and edged

Written by Alaine

I’m talking about Daniel Charon’s dancers and latest choreographic adventure. This weekend I’m going to check out Daniel Charon’s show at the beautiful Joyce Soho theater. If you haven’t been to the Joyce Soho theater to see groundbreaking dance performances yet, you would be excited to know that the theater is in an incredible location with Jamba Juice, Marc Jacobs, Haven Spa, Mercer Kitchen, and Mercer Hotel within the same block! The theater is housed in a three story former firehouse with the theater on the first floor. This intimate theater only holds 74 seats and the proximity of the stage to the seats enables the audience to experience the energy of the performers. Purchase a fabulous outfit at Marc Jacobs, grab a smoothie at Jamba Juice, chug it while getting your nails done at Haven, watch Daniel’s show at Joyce Soho, and eat a late dinner at Mercer Kitchen, hang out at the bar upstairs – a perfect Soho outing!

Conduit, points three compelling works toward consideration of one’s personal and societal relationships. At one moment robust and voluptuous, the next sinewy and edged, Charon’s formidable cast lures its audience to intimate places of fervent murmurs.
