14th Annual Provincetown Dance Festival Lands on Stage of Provincetown Theater
The Provincetown Theater is honored to partner with the Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill in producing this 14th Annual Provincetown Dance Festival. The festival will include seven companies, totaling some 20 dancers of various and eclectic styles and disciplines for two performances only: Friday, June 21 and Saturday, June 22 at 7:30 pm at the Provincetown Theater at 238 Bradford Street, Provincetown, MA
This season, artists hail from Philadelphia, Providence, Boston, Hartford and Seattle. From classical Indian dance to tap to hip-hop to ballet and contemporary dance, our artists include:
Rachna Agawal returns after several years with her dynamic and highly technical interpretations of Indian Katak dance. Khalil Hill is a rising tap star on the Boston Tap Scene. He is joined by the conceptual tap performance styles of Orlando Hernandez, who hails from Providence. From Philadelphia, comes Gabrielle Revlock and Sasha Frolov: two artists dedicated to innovation and contemporary dance filled with unexpected flair and originality. Danielle Davidson, and contemporary dance innovator, has collaborated with Orlando Hernandez on a completely new duet.
Artists new to the festival include, Junichi Fukuda with FUKUDANCE, Cayleen Del Rosario, and Alexandr Frolov, who will perform a world premiere duet in collaboration with Philadelphia performer and dance-maker, Gabrielle Revlock. Revlock appeared at the festival several years ago, and mesmerized viewers with her singular performance. Fukuda creates arresting solos and duets with a sense of cultural awareness and haunting sensuality. Del Rosario is a young artist from New York City, who is developing a fresh voice, and will present a large work with multiple dancers. Sokeo Ros returns to with a reprisal of his very moving, personal work: tracing his journey from Cambodia to the streets of urban Providence, RI. This integrates video and speech with movement. Sokeo is also the director of CaseClosed! CaseClosed! is a youth ensemble that utilizes multiple dance forms, including hip-hop and contemporary dance to express vivid stories of the performers’ daily lives.

ABOUT THE PLAY:
Love! Lust! Revenge!
Composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim’s musical masterpiece, Sweeney Todd is lush, operatic, full of soaring beauty, pitch-black comedy and stunning terror. Winner of 8 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, it is one of the signal achievements of the American musical theater of the last fifty years. A Musical Thriller, Sweeney Todd tells the unsettling tale of a Victorian-era barber who returns home to London after fifteen years of exile to take revenge on the corrupt judge who ruined his life. When revenge eludes him, Sweeney swears vengeance on the entire human race, murdering as many people as he can, while his business associate, Mrs. Lovett, bakes the victims into meat pies and sells them to the unsuspecting public who can’t seem to get enough of her tasty fare. The Provincetown Theater is proud to present this 40th anniversary production.

Directed by David Drake | Play by Joe Landry
It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play is based on the classic holiday movie with a clever twist thrown in: the story is staged as a live radio broadcast. Actors portray numerous characters, and sound effects are done through Foley artists. It’s a Wonderful Life is about the life of George Bailey, a generous and well-meaning man who has become too downcast and tired to continue living. It will take help from a lovable angel to show George what life would be like if he wasn’t born for George to have a change of heart and understand the true spirit of the holidays.
