Equally transcendent was Lloyd Knight’s performance of Molissa Fenley’s 1988 States of Darkness at the Joyce in late summer. Set to Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring, the dance is a tour de force for a solo dancer, who ends up bathed in sweat, sustained by incomprehensible hidden reserves of energy bordering on delirium. Knight shaped his body into concave and convex shapes, skated across space, and slashed at his body with his limbs. Through it all, he maintained an uncanny focus, as if watching the dance unfold even as he performed it. Time stood still.
