Take the chill out of winter with the Trocks, the all-male troupe whose brilliant pointe work and hilarious parodying produce paroxysms of giggles and wild applause throughout the world. A highlight of the company’s Joyce season is the New York premiere of an excerpt from the final act of “Laurencia,” a 1939 piece about a peasant revolution, originally choreographed by Vakhtang Chabukiani. The programs also feature favorites like “Paquita” and “Go For Barocco,” and a star turn by prima ballerina Ida Nevasayneva (aka Paul Ghiselin), whose “Dying Swan, with its molting feathers and funky chicken interpolations, may well by now have eclipsed Anna Pavlova’s original.” — Chicago Tribune
