ArtsCentric opens its 2019 season with its highest selling original work, Snapshots. A story told entirely through dance follows the life of Damon, a kid obsessed with photography, and his tragic death at the hands of law enforcement. This senseless killing sparks a revolution in a community that had long forgotten the power of its own voice and rallies a change in everyone that they never knew possible. From ballet, jazz, hip hop, to step, tap and liturgical, this emotionally gripping piece has left audiences speechless.
Considered by many to be the greatest play ever written, Hamlet is everything Shakespeare wrote distilled to a single play. Funny, thrilling, and heartbreaking, Hamlet is a tour de force. It has represented many things to many people, and stands as shorthand for “Theatre.” Strip away the pretense, though, and what’s left is still a masterpiece. We present it in original pronunciation, as audiences first heard it.

A native of Italy, Peppino D'Agostino emerged on the musical scene in the late 1980's and helped redefine the boundaries of the acoustic guitar. His virtuosic technique, penchant for open tunings, and percussive effects are the basis of his unique compositional style which has been inspiring musicians and audiences alike for years. Add to that his natural warmth, playfulness, and broad musical tastes and you have the recipe for what he calls “minestrone music”.
