Description: Heralded by the Boston Globe for its "exuberant, gorgeous and delightfully oddball style," David Dorfman Dance returns to The Joyce with Prophets of Funk, a work that reinvigorates "boomer memories to the sounds of Sly and the Family Stone." (Boston Phoenix). "A celebration of the band's groundbreaking, visceral and political music, a tribute to the 'funk' of everyday people, the piece leaves everyone dancing in their seats, except for those choosing to join the performers on stage," says the choreographer. "Dorfman in league with Sly and the Family Stone? Irresistible." The Village Voice
