Three Parts Invention and One Part?

The Pamela Trokanski Dance Theatre is pleased to announce that tickets are now on sale for their spring premieres of Three Parts Invention and One Part?

Three Parts Invention and One Part? will run on Sunday, April 7, at 3:00pm followed by two more performances on Friday, April 12 and Saturday, April 13, both at 7:30pm.

Three Parts Invention and One Part? asks the question: If we are ¾ invention, what is that last ¼ made of? It is an exploration of how we, as both unique individual beings and a species, have been continually challenged to invent and re-invent ourselves in order to survive, even as the world around us unfolds … From the insights of singular individuals to the development of social contracts Three Parts Invention and One Part? investigates how we might learn from the past to better navigate the future.

The PTDT continues their 34th season with this premiere piece. Known for work that integrates a strong sense of athleticism and technical training with idiosyncratic movements and a diverse range of movers, the PTDT is not just dance, but a theatrical experience as well.

Ticket prices:
$18.00 general admission
$12.00 children, students, and senior citizens

Tickets are available in advance at the Pamela Trokanski Dance Workshop, at Brown Paper Tickets, and at the door beginning 30 minutes before each performance.
All performances are held at the Pamela Trokanski Dance Workshop Studio Theater,
2720 Del Rio Place, in Davis.

something for holidays with their premiere of Ephemera & The Little Prince.  Ephemera & The Little Prince will run on Saturday, December 8, at 4:00pm and 7:00pm with an additional performance on Sunday, December 9, at 2:00pm.

Join the PTDT and guests as they present this year’s holiday concert. For those of you who
might be tired of the rush and bustle of every day, Ephemera & the Little Prince is a story of the ephemeral nature of life and love, and of understanding the things in life which are most important and can only be seen clearly with the heart.

Also important, this 55 minute performance is fun for the whole family, and still leaves you plenty of time to do other holiday activities!

All performances are held at the Pamela Trokanski Dance Workshop Studio Theater,
2720 Del Rio Place, in Davis.  All seats are $10.00.  Tickets will be available beginning Nov. 28, and can be purchased at the Dance Workshop or online at Brown Paper Tickets.

Davis Dance Project: Art in 4 Dimensions

Sponsored, in part, by a grant from the City of Davis Arts & Cultural Affairs Program, and produced by Pamela Trokanski, Art in 4 Dimensions, is the exciting culmination of the collaborative process by multiple local artists, creating unique works of art that exist in time, space, and sound. It also allows us to offer FREE tickets to children 12 and younger (who must be with a supervising adult) and reduced ticket prices, of $10, for everyone 13 and older. Tickets are available, in advance, at the Dance Workshop, or at the door beginning 30 minutes before each show. Please note that while children 12 and younger come for free, they must have a ticket so that we can track the number of seats that are reserved.

Expanding last year’s collaborations, this year’s Art in 4 Dimensions brings together a diverse range of artists in multiple mediums, including pieces by visual artists Parto Aram, Molly Dunning, Joan Jarvis, Edythe Schwartz, and Josh Tulman, musical compositions by Hank Lawson & Mary Superak, choreography by Erin Dunning, Taylor Herrera, Michele Tobias, Pamela Trokanski, and Vuong Nguyen, and poetry by Davis Poet Laureate James Lee Jobe & Poet Emeritus Allegra Silberstein.

Davis Dance Project: Art in 4 Dimensions will run Friday and Saturday, March 1 & 2. Show times are Friday, 7:00pm and Saturday, 3:00pm and 7:00pm, with all performances taking placeat the Studio Theater located at the Pamela Trokanski Dance Workshop & Performing Arts Center, located at 2720 Del Rio Place, in Davis.For more information, please contact Myvanwy Morgan at office@trokanski.com or Pamela Trokanski at pamela@trokanski.com.
