Cafe of Old Dreams

Cafe of Old Dreams premieres NOW! Click the link below to view this virtual performance! 👇

Cafe of Old Dreams is an original dance portrait, encapsulated by the music of Hawkwood, the folk duo composed of John and Patrice Schanck. Cafe of Old Dreams depicts the story of two artists, struggling to define the unique relationship between their commitment to one another and their individual artistic expression, within a world so often dominated by cynicism and hopelessness.

This piece was originally performed during Walton Arts Center's Artosphere 2021, Arkansas’ Arts + Nature Festival. Featuring NWABT dancers Lilly Hill and Justin Rainey, "Cafe of Old Dreams" is an organic innovation from the creative workforce represented within NWA Ballet Theatre.

Choreography: Kerridwyn Schanck @kerridwyn.s
