Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre opens its 2023-2024 performance season this month with LEGENDS AND FAIRYTALES at the Tarkington. Entering GHDT’s 26th season, Executive Artistic Director and Choreographer Gregory Hancock will continue his legacy of eloquent and passionate storytelling through music and dance by presenting tales from two diverse cultures for this concert. An audience favorite, LA LLORONA, is a work derived from a Mexican legend about love and spirits and premiered in 2019. It will captivate the audience through imagination and layers of theatrical nuance. A new work, ANGELS AND DJINN, will use Turkish classical and folk music, stunning costumes, movement and lighting to help tell these meaningful stories, which will engage audiences and make deep emotional connections. Guest Choreographer and GHDT Company Dancer Thomas Mason will premiere a new work presented by the dancers of GHDT. THE ALLEY OF THE KISS is inspired by the famous tale, El Callejon Del Beso. A tragic love story based on true events, this piece will sweep audiences into a world of secret love along a narrow alley in Guanajuato, Mexico. Through a thread of everyday universal truths told through these mystical tales, the artists of GHDT will provide a backdrop for uniting audiences into a common experience.
