About the Experience

Upon arrival, audience members will step into a unique experience, beginning in the garden where they will receive a recycled Carmel Dance Festival tote bag and have the chance to pick fresh vegetables. VIP guests will enjoy totes that include honey harvested by Rancho Cielo students. The journey continues to the courtyard, where refreshments await, accompanied by captivating performances from contemporary dancers. For the grand finale, guests will move to the amphitheater for the main stage production.

The evening's innovative program includes:

  • "Summer" by Robin Dekkers
  • A new solo by Dutch choreographer Anouk van Djik
  • The world premiere of a work by Brooklyn-based dance maker Kelly Ashton Todd with live cello by Michelle Djokic.

Guests are welcome to bring their own cuisine or savor a Hollywood Bowl-style gourmet box curated by Chef Todd, featuring ingredients harvested by the dancers themselves. The magical evening will conclude with dessert and intimate conversations with the artists on the patio overlooking the breathtaking Salinas Valley.

Leading up to the performances, as part of the rehearsal process, the dancers will engage in a series of visits to local farms to harvest, plant, and learn about regenerative farming. By connecting directly with the earth, the dancers will not only draw inspiration for their performances but also share a powerful message about how sustainable farming can help combat climate change. This fusion of sustainable farming and dance creates an innovative experience that is both enriching and inspiring.

All proceeds from this production will support Carmel Dance Festival's 2025 Fellowship Program, providing production support for emerging choreographers and full scholarships to promising young dancers who otherwise would not have the means to pursue their dreams.

Join us for an unforgettable evening of dance in an unforgettable place.
