Joshua Beamish’s “Move: The Company” led off The Joyce’s two-week long Ballet Festival. Any new choreography venture is worth sup-porting, but here, the whole was less than the sum of the parts. Beam- ish, a Canadian choreo- grapher who founded his company a decade ago, has recently done work for Wendy Whelan on her “Rest-less Creature” project. Within this festival, he also created a work for Ashley Bouder’s group. For this concert, he hooked up with dancers at American Ballet Theatre.
