TWO Performances, Saturday, May 30 @8pm, and Sunday, May 31 @2pm. Link to purchase tickets: http://www.centerstagetheater.org/. Come see the Dance With Harout Performance Company perform 11 original pieces, all choreographed and directed by Harout Aristakessian. Harout’s unique choreographic voice coalesces stylistic elements from street and lyrical hip hop, burlesque, urban-inspired jazz and Middle Eastern dance traditions. Instead of insisting on rigid adherence to any one form of expression, Harout encourages dancers to infuse each dance move with her or his own spirit and style. This artistic focus on self-expression and self-acceptance (as opposed to physical or aesthetic “perfection”) allows dancers the freedom to explore new emotional, intellectual and physical connections to the music and choreography. Harout has harnessed and forged this artistic diversity into an eclectic repertoire of cohesive works that showcase each dancer’s voice and abilities.
