La Playa Dance Performance: Olga Rabetskaya at CAS

ivingston Manor, NY – Together with the Dance Gallery Festival (DGF), Catskill Art Space (CAS) is thrilled to welcome back 2023 Ardsley Dance Residency resident Olga Rabetskaya for a culminating performance, first workshopped at CAS in the fall of 2023. Audiences are invited to watch open rehearsals on Friday, May 24, 3-5pm, with the culminating performance on Saturday, May 25 at 4pm. Both rehearsals and performances are free and open to all, and will take place in the second floor, River Gallery at Catskill Art Space, 48 Main Street, Livingston Manor, NY.

In La Playa, four dancers embody the four elements of Earth – wind, Earth, water, and fire. This representation on stage demonstrates the performers’ transition from the mind to the body and our emotions. The musicians alongside are like guides, connecting performers to the divine, to Pacha Mama and the universe. These musicians and performers share a close connection, listening to each other in harmony without hierarchy, breaking conventional music and dance relationships. Through dance, the audience is urged to reconsider their inner self and how they connect with the world around them.
