Carmel-based Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre will present “Dances for a New World: Part Two,” a virtual performance, at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 13. Twenty-four hours after the premiere, the production will be available on-demand until Feb. 20.
Executive Artistic Director Gregory Hancock created works for the GHDT 23rd performance season with the constantly evolving world in mind amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“The productions have been created in parts and each designed to reflect the current times,” Hancock stated.
“Dances for a New World: Part One to Part Three” are each comprised of multiple stories told through creative theatrical art experiences.
“Part Two reflects innate human condition as our world changes and the spiritual battle lies within us,” Hancock stated. “The arts are a powerful tool that foster human connection and awaken human emotions. Our journey continues with Part Two of new dance works that are coupled with powerful and eclectic music ranging from avant-garde to classical.”
After an affirming response from audiences of “Dances for a New World: Part One” in October 2020, Hancock began work on creating “Part Two.” Originally scheduled for performances in January at The Tarkington at the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel, “Dances for a New World: Part Two” had to transition to a virtual performance.
“Creating dance for film is a uniquely different process from a typical stage performance. This was an exciting new adventure for the dancers and me,” Hancock stated. “We are thrilled to bring our patrons new works in a new medium. We know they will enjoy it.”
GHDT worked with Fishers resident Chris Lingner, a professional dancer and videographer, to produce the production.
