Prince Dance Company
October 4, 2014 at YOUR Leeward Theatre
Prince Dance makes their Oahu debut at the Leeward Theatre!
Prince Dance Company merges performing arts on stage in “Que Sueñes Con Las Angelitas,” an enchanting multimedia dance-theatre piece, at The Leeward Theatre.
The performance follows the life of a singer through monologue, contemporary and tango dance, song, video projection, original music, and trapeze. The title translates from Spanish as “sweet dreams,” or “to dream with the angels.”
The evening-length work features an international cast of actors and dancers, including choreographer Angel Prince; writer Beth Dunnington; Emiliano Alcaraz, an Argentinian tango dancer; Teresa Marcaida, a Julliard-trained dancer; and Hawaii-Island-based Prince Dance Company dancers, Lia Gregory and Elizabeth McDonald.
Co-creator Angel Prince explains: “This is a dance performance for people who don’t think they like dance. There really is something for everyone and all ages are welcome!”
“Equal parts dance and theater, this original piece follows the journey of my character’s life through monologue, trapeze, tango, contemporary dance, and song” says co-creator Beth Dunnington.
Que Sueñes premiered at the Kahilu Theatre in March of 2010 to a sold-out audience and is planning a mainland tour for 2015. The company will travel to and perform on Oahu at the Leeward Theatre and will be followed by aBig Island performance at the Kahilu Theatre.
Prince Dance is a non-profit professional contemporary dance company based in Hawaii and Buenos Aires, Argentina, led by Artistic Director Angel Prince, who splits her time between both locales. The Prince Dance Institute is a feeder school for the company and is currently in residency and partnership with the Kahilu Theatre, offering hip-hop, trapeze, musical theatre, ballet, hula, acting, and contemporary dance classes for youth and adults.
