Center Stage Theater & Dance With Harout present

The latest entry in the Center Stage Digital Arts Festival!

Experience Fantasyland by the Dance with Harout Performance Company from the socially distanced location of your choice, directed and choreographed by Harout Aristakessian. Fantasyland includes 11 dances in genres of hip hop, jazz funk, and burlesque. In Fantasyland, the bridge between reality and fantasy become interchangeable.  It's a place where stereotypes are deconstructed and societal rules are broken.  A stage ensemble of dances reflecting the awareness of what your authentic-self fantasizes about and goes on to live and fully accept in reality. You’ll be captivated by the individuality of the dancers, exquisite lighting and costumes, and the message found in each performance.

These dance pieces were filmed at Center Stage with full COVID safety precautions, and have been compiled into a fabulous video presentation.

On Saturday March 20 at 6:00 in a livestream event we will debut the video, followed by a post-performance chat with Harout and some of the dancers. Following this debut event the video will be available for on-demand viewing through April 4th.

While the pandemic has changed all our lives, it has especially impacted our local theaters and performing artists. This event is a benefit for Center Stage Theater and the Dance With Harout Performance Comany. Your support will help ensure that life-enriching arts and entertainment continues in Santa Barbara during these uncertain times.
