Concentrated pacing begins while bodies clad in black unitards contrast the bright backdrop, creating a detached landscape of stoic faces; the simplicity in this abstraction is fleeing. The New York-based Jessica Lang Dance company (stocked with technically adept dancers – particularly the ladies) had its full season debut at The Joyce Theater this week, showcasing choreographer Jessica Lang’s contemporary-inspired ensemble work, balletic pas de duex, dance on film, and an array of glitzy production elements. The six piece program opened with “Lines Cubed” (2012), the strongest of the evening’s three New York premieres...its beauty lies in the choreographic architecture; dancers travel in shifting webs of lines, joint accentuations - a bend the wrist, a flex of the foot, - decorate the momentum of recurring patterns and sharp unison.
