The Pamela Trokanski Dance Theatre and The Third Stage Dance Company will present the world premiere of “Negotiating Meaning” in three performances for local audiences.
Curtain times are 3 p.m. Sunday, April 22, and 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, April 27-28, at the in-house theater at the Pamela Trokanski Dance Workshop, 2720 Del Rio Place in Mace Ranch. All seats are $12.
” ‘Negotiating Meaning’ is a look at how we come understand the world around us and inside us … from the early popular teachings such as potty training, to the much more intricate understandings involved in global politics or smart phones that answer questions such as what is the meaning of life,” Trokanski says in a news release.
“It’s a tongue-in-cheek look that is both thoughtful and humorous, about the evolution of our species and how we find meaning in the world.”
Set to text by Trokanski, recorded interviews and a wide range of music — including songs by Monty Python, Ross Copperman, Joan Osbourne, Jon Heintz, Tom Lehrer and Cake — the work promises to be an entertaining romp appropriate for audiences of all ages.
Tickets are available in advance at the Pamela Trokanski Dance Workshop and may be purchased 30 minutes before each show. For more information, call (530) 756-3949.
