Trokanski presents ‘Dukkha, Dark Matter and Riding on Trains’

A Buddhist belief, a scientific mystery and a train trip to Illinois are the focus of a new dance work by Davis choreographer Pamela Trokanski.

The 28th season of the Pamela Trokanski Dance Theatre opens with the premiere of “Dukkha, Dark Matter and Riding on Trains,” a thoughtful and humorous look at impermanence, the great unknown and the people who share our journey.

Set to text by Trokanski, interviews with dancers and a wide range of music — including pieces by Natalie Merchant, Cake, Florence and the Machine, Gavin Rossdale and Sarah MacLachlan — the work is, from one perspective, the story of five days on a train. From another point of view, it is the story of our lives and the journey we begin from the moment of our birth.

Joining the Pamela Trokanski Dance Theatre is The Third Stage, a multi-generational, contemporary company, with dancers ranging in age from 9 to 82. Their work is a testament to the belief that dance is not the sole property of a technically trained elite but a form of creative endeavor open to all.

Performances are at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Nov. 9-10. Tickets are $12, available now at the Pamela Trokanski Dance Workshop, 2720 Del Rio Place. Tickets also will be available 30 minutes before each show. All performances will take place at the in-house theater at the Dance Workshop.

For more information, call Trokanski at 530-756-3949.
