A Behind-the-Scenes Look at Innovative Works


January 25 -February 16, 2019 | Center for Dance


Acclaimed choreographer Peter Chu joins Robinson Distinguished Professor of Shakespeare Dr. Andrew Hartley to examine and embody Hamlet’s emotional transformation at Innovative Works.

Peter and Andrew decided on Hamlet as their inspiration for their collaborative work because they found his dramaturgical shift throughout the play interesting. Instead of portraying a narrative, their goal is to create moving imagery based off of Hamlet’s emotional journey.

The 200-seat theater at the Center for Dance provides the perfect venue, bringing the artist and audience together for a truly unique experience. For an added bonus –we offer free parking and tickets include a dessert reception with the dancers and artistic staff following the show. Join us in exploring Shakespeare’s enduring tales in a fresh, provocative way. Tickets start at just $25!
