Presented by Lakeshore Players Theatre
After much thought, planning, creating, and discussion on how we can continue to bring the arts to our phenomenal community even though we currently cannot gather at the theatre, Lakeshore Players Theatre is proud to present QUARANTINE CABARET!
Join us every Friday at 5:00 pm for a new episode of QUARANTINE CABARET to be released on our Facebook and Instagram pages, along with our YouTube channel and website. These episodes will feature performances by some of our favorite LPT Community Members. We've got singing, dancing, sketch comedy, and who knows what else!
In addition to our QUARANTINE CABARET, we are also launching our LPT Artist Fund to help support our artists during these difficult times. If you are interested in donating, you can do so by following this link: https://bit.ly/LPTArtistFund.
Presented by Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company
Kicking off their third decade of inventive programming, the New York City-based non-profit Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company premieres a new dance film, The Fantasyland Project, via a live screening and talkback with the artists. A collaboration between choreographer Daniel Gwirtzman and a cast of sixteen dancers, the twenty-minute film investigates the notion of fantasy through a range of lenses.
The project’s inception traces back to Daniel’s trip to Greece in July 2019 where he dreamt up the concept and title for the presciently named Fantasyland, which was to have been presented at Long Island City’s Green Space and Manhattan’s Bryant Park. As he had written then:
Fantasyland is an imaginative view of the world where perfected beauty, euphoria, and magical charm reign supreme. An antidote to the division which cleaves this Dis-United States, and channeling the gay spirit of Pride, Fantasyland views humanity through pink-colored lenses, presenting utopian portraits of harmonious relationships and optimistically-fantastic scenarios.
As time and circumstance have evolved, it became clear Fantasyland could not progress as originally planned. This socially-distant reimagining of the project, with an original score by longtime collaborator Jeff Story, is free to attend, and can be found at HERE.
