The PGK Project, in presenting San Diego Dances on Broadway, continued the company emphasis on staging dance in unusual venues, in order to bring contemporary dance to new audiences.
The venerable, marble walled and floored, Grand Lobby of the historic Spreckel’s Theater, became dance performance space on October 26 & 27, 2012, for 7 vibrant new works, offered by the PGK Project and guest artists (choreographers & dancers).
Of Special Note: The program finale premiere, Breakdown, choreographed by PGK Artistic Director, Peter Kalivas, was a turbo-charged, audience pleasing romp, excellently performed by the PGK Project company. Guest choreographer Khamla Somphanh‘s innovative and masterful choreography shined in the Jessica Rabanza-Flores’ dynamic solo (One then Four) and Piper Dye’s beautiful & soulful solo performance (Light Within).
Evocative premieres of Beyond Yes and Seeking Shelter, were presented by guest choreographers Viviana Alcazar and Heather Dale Wentworth, Artistic Director of Opus Mixtus.
