Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre continues their 2023-2024 performance season with FABLES AND FOLKLORE at The Tarkington.  Join GHDT for the highly anticipated return of the popular PINOCCHIO!  In Executive Artistic Director Gregory Hancock’s adaptation of PINOCCHIO, the lonely Geppetto, an inventor of “Steampunk” dolls and robots, longs for a real human child which results in consequential adventure.  Two World Premieres created by Mr. Hancock will also be performed.  GOLEM, drawn from Czech folklore is the story of a clay golem created by a rabbi to protect the Jewish ghetto of Prague from persecution.  And the final tale featuring original music by GHDT collaborator and composer Cory Gabel, XOCHITL AND HUITZILIN will tell the Aztec story of young love, separation and reunification.  Using masterful dancing, choreography, imagination, and layers of theatrical nuance, Mr. Hancock connects audiences to the tales of these three diverse cultures.
