Choreographer Pamela Trokanski and the dancers of the Pamela Trokanski Dance Theatre and The Third Stage present “Serendipity, Parallel Universes, and Opening Pandora’s Box.” The performance opens at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 17, and continues with 8 p.m. performances Friday and Saturday, March 22-23.

The piece began as an experiment in community choreography, with a “Name That Dance” contest and then follow-up voting, online or in hard copy, for one of five finalist titles. After the winner was chosen, research and development began, culminating in a piece that unites all three concepts thematically.

Set to text by Trokanski and a wide range of contemporary music — including pieces by Ingrid Michaelson, The xx, Phillip Phillips, The Mountain Goats and Imagine Dragons — the dance explores the importance of stories, how those stories might affect the choices we make in life, and the “curse” of knowledge.

In its 28th season, this contemporary company is known for exploring concepts that span the contemporary cultural experience with the personal journey, in dance that is both athletic and idiosyncratic, utilizing both highly trained and non-traditional dancers and movers for a finished product that is both accessible and visually satisfying.

All shows are held at the Pamela Trokanski Dance Workshop in-house theater, 2720 Del Rio Place in Davis. Tickets are $12 and may be purchased in advance at the Dance Workshop, or at the door 30 minutes before each performance. For the Sunday performance — in honor of St. Patrick’s Day — those wearing green will get in for half-price.

For more information, call 530-756-3949 or visit www.trokanski.com.
