About the Event

Collaboration has been a mainstay of our 50-year history and this event is a testimony to that cooperation. Together with our esteemed colleagues at the American Dance Festival, Carolina Performing Arts, and Duke Arts we are thrilled to present Emanuel Gat Dance’s LOVETRAIN2020 set to the epic pop of Tears for Fears.

Emanuel Gat Dance is known worldwide for their rigorous and bewitching choreography. In addition to touring internationally with his company, Gat has collaborated with Paris Opera Ballet, Sydney Dance Company, Czech National Ballet, Royal Swedish Ballet, Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet, and other leading dance companies.

Created during the pandemic, LOVETRAIN2020 is an electrically-charged work for 14 dancers in lavish costumes. It “is everything the small-scale, often somber work made for video during the past months is not. It’s loud, joyous, physical, close.” (The New York Times) To put it simply, it is not to be missed. Plus won’t it be fun to put on all your Wolfpack gear and go see a performance at the light blue school down the road?

exhilarating…celebration of the body, of performance, of life.”

-The New York Times
