GHDT’S EXODUS Cancelled for August- Season Opening Performance in October Announced
Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre, the resident professional dance company at The Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel, has made the difficult decision to CANCEL the rescheduled production of EXODUS which was to take place August 21 & 22, 2020.
Due to the on-going COVID – 19 health situation and to protect the health and safety of employees, performers and audience members, The Center has issued guidelines as they reopen their venues based on industry best practices and government guidelines that include limited audience size, required social distancing of audience members and performers, and the use of PPE. GHDT’s EXODUS is a production that is vast and powerful with a large cast and is not conducive for the restraints of the theatre at this time. We look forward to bringing this amazing performance to the stage again in the future when the time is right.
Ticket purchasers may convert their EXODUS ticket purchases into a tax-deductible contribution to support Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre. Please contact The Center’s Box Office over the next 10 days by email at [email protected] and please indicate EXODUS- donation of tickets. If you elect not to convert your EXODUS ticket purchase into a donation, your ticket order will be refunded by the box office. It is through your generosity that GHDT will continue to weather this crisis and bring service to the community through the arts again.
We are happy to announce, Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre will open its 23rd Performance Season on October 23 & 24, 2020 at The Tarkington at The Center for the Performing Arts with GHDT RE-IMAGINED.
This opening performance will feature the talented artists of GHDT in new works as well as re-imagined repertoire pieces created by Executive Artistic Director Gregory Hancock keenly accommodating our new world of live arts. “The arts always find a way to survive, evolve, and flourish, so I must now find new ways to tell my stories and this change will afford my creativity to work in new ways,” says Mr. Hancock. “I must rethink my visions in order to re-imagine my past reality, and move forward creating art in the present environment. I enter this time of uncertainty with an open mind, because as a story-teller, I am inspired by the world around me and my experiences. Instead of focusing on what I cannot do, I have shifted my focus to celebrate what I can do. I look forward to seeing you in the theatre again and sharing my re-imagined world of dance with you!” he adds.
