The Afternoon of a Faun (2022)


The Afternoon of a Faun is a queer reimagining of Claude Debussy's famous ballet score Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune (originally choreographed by Vaslav Nijinsky for the Ballets Russes in 1912) for eight male-identifying dancers. The New York première of the work, with costume designs by Andrew Jordan and lighting by Joe Levasseur, was commissioned by the Joyce Theater and took place there from June 28th-July 3rd, 2022.
