CHELSEA — The Joyce Theater’s second Gotham Dance Festival is in full swing, with modern pieces by 12 different choreographers.

Both emerging and nationally renowned companies will perform, with a different choreographer showcasing work every few days.

Brian Brooks Moving Company performed this weekend, with dancers who tumbled, intertwined, and fanned translucent fabrics in the air. In his own solo piece, Brooks jerked his body in a business suit to hyper beats.

The New York-based Kate Weare Company will begin its performances Tuesday, with its world premiere of the intimate, sensual dance, "Garden."

"I'm interested in what connects us as we navigate this particular period in human history," Weare wrote on her company’s website.

The festival, from June 1-12, sells tickets starting at $10.
