Friday, June 23 &
Saturday, June 24
at the Provincetown Theater
As with every successful season to date, the 2017 line-up of seven dance companies will include a wide range of performers, celebrating the richness of today’s national dance landscape. Performers range from tap to ballet, to contemporary, hip-hop and classical Indian dance. This year’s slate of diverse, high level professionals hail from New York, New England, and as far away as Seattle.
A duet by Spectrum Dance Theater, choreographed by Artistic Director, Donald Byrd, an internationally acclaimed, Tony Award nominee, who heads this dynamic nationally recognized company based in Seattle WA. The appearance of Spectrum Dance Theater marks the presentation of what may be the Provincetown Dance Festival’s most acclaimed dance company.
Two other new companies this year will include the contemporary Rovaco Dance Company, from New York City, under the leadership of Rohan Bhargava, and The Tony Williams Ballet. Over many decades, Tony Williams has become a Boston dance institution, bringing his special take on contemporary ballet.
After several years absence, the Provincetown Dance Festival welcomes the return of Portland Ballet. This year, audiences will have the unique experience of seeing them perform an excerpt from legendary classical Pas de Deux from Swan Lake: likely the first time for this great masterpiece to be seen on the Outer Cape. In bright contrast to Swan Lake, Rachna Arawal, from Hartford, CT, will perform works from the classical traditions of East Indian Dance.
Other popular returning artists will include annual audience favorites, the Boston Tap Company and the innovative, much talked about hip-hop/fusion dance group, Case Closed!, directed by Sokeo Ros.
