Rioult2016iRioult2016kRioult2016eRioult Dance returns to the Joyce Theater, with eight performances, June 21-26. Program A features Pascal Rioult’s “Women on the Edge: Unsung Heroes of the Trojan War,” including the world premiere of “Cassandra’s Curse.”

Cassandra is a prophetess, who knows what is to befall Troy and tries to warn the people but they ignore her. The work, with its contemporary echoes, includes original music by Richard Danielpour.

Sara Seger plays Casandra, and is brilliant in the role.
