Fall Concert: “Right Here, Right Now”

November 3, 8 & 9, 2019

Have you been feeling a little overwhelmed by too much noise and contradictory information lately? Perhaps a little besieged by the growing tide of bad behaviors, violence, name calling, and more?

The Pamela Trokanski Dance Theatre would like to invite you to their Fall Concert, Right Here, Right Now; an opportunity to leave the chaos behind for a moment and enjoy works that celebrate unity and hope. The performance will open on Sunday, November 3 at 3:00pm and run the following Friday and Saturday, November 8 and 9, at 7:30pm.

Right Here, Right Now will feature live music provided by the DCC3; singers Amy Golden, Sharyn Orris and Music Minister, Emma Turnbull from the Chancel Choir at Davis Community Church. They love to sing close harmony and are very excited to collaborate with the Pamela Trokanski Dance Company this fall.

The PTDT continues their 35th season with this new collaboration. Known for work that integrates a strong sense of athleticism and technical training with idiosyncratic movements and a diverse range of movers, including dancers from The Third Stage, the PTDT is not your average dance company.

All performances are held at the Pamela Trokanski Dance Workshop Studio Theater, 2720 Del Rio Place, in Davis.
