The 29th season of the Pamela Trokanski Dance Theatre opens at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 10, with the premiere of “The Illusion of Control.”
Choreographed to recorded text and a wide range of music — including works by Ingrid Michaelson, Tears for Fears, Cheryl Wheeler, Patty Larkin, Radical Face and Steed Lord — the piece is a look at how we, as individuals and a culture, seek to maintain a sense of personal power over our destinies.
The work comes alive through 19 dancers from the Pamela Trokanski Dance Theatre, the PTDT Apprentice Company and The Third Stage — a multi-generational, contemporary company — allowing choreographer Trokanski to reflect the wide range of human experience.
Thought-provoking and humorous, it’s an entertaining romp through personal and cultural obsessions and is appropriate for all ages.
Performances continue at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Nov. 15 and 16.
All performances are at the in-house theater at the Pamela Trokanski Dance Workshop & Performing Arts Center, 2720 Del Rio Place.
All seats are $12. Tickets may be purchased at the door, in advance, at the Dance Workshop or online at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/502663.
