Joy - Choreography by John Castagna

John Castagna’s JOY is choreographed for six dancers to Debussy’s “L’isle joyeuse”. The musical score (1904) was inspired by a painting by the French artist Watteau “Pilgrimage to Cythera”, the Greek island where the goddess Aphrodite was born and this is reflected in the opening tableau of the dance. In JOY the dancers celebrate the strength of love and honor the concept of equal marriage for all.
