Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre announces its 2021-22 performance season schedule will include new works and past favorites. Season tickets will be available for the four concerts at The Tarkington at the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel beginning July 12. Diamond Glassworks will be a partner as the presenting sponsor.
The season begins with “Under The Big Top” at 7 p.m. Aug. 26-28 at The Tarkington at the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel. GHDT is back at The Tarkington for “There’s No Place Like Home” Oct. 28-30, featuring a unique adaptation of “The Wizard of Oz.”
GHDT’s presentation of “The Nutcracker” is set for Pike Performing Arts Center Dec. 3-4.
The 2022 portion of the schedule opens with “The Black Dahlia” at The Academy of Dance Theatre, which will convert the rehearsal space into a black-box theater. “The Black Dahlia” debuted in 2017. It is based on the unsolved Hollywood murder of Elizabeth Short in 1947.
“Exodus” will be presented at The Tarkington April 7-9. Inspired by the Book of Exodus but adapted to the modern world, “Exodus” is a cautionary tale of hatred and ignorance. The 10 modern plagues include: desecration of the Earth, gun violence, racism, war, poverty, crime, social media, government, selfishness and death of the firstborn.
GHDT will close its 2021-22 season with the world premiere of “Antony and Cleopatra” at The Tarkington June 9-11. This new full-length, grand work pairs the talents of GHDT Artistic Director Gregory Hancock and award-winning composer Cory Gable, known for his evocative musical score for GHDT’s “The Casket Girls.” GHDT’S “Antony and Cleopatra” is a contemporary retelling of the classic tale and will be set in anytime and anyplace.
