October 2, 2020 marks the 5th annual celebration of Audiophile Day.  Please join in celebrating audiophiles around the world.

This is a day to appreciate audiophiles and all that they contribute to the world.  Audiophiles are people that are enthusiastic – even passionate – about high-fidelity (Hi-Fi) sound/music reproduction.  Their musical tastes are not necessarily limited to any one genre and may be, in fact, quite eclectic.

The values of audiophiles are involved in every stage of music reproduction:  the initial recording of the performance, the mastering process, the production processes, and, of course, the final playback.

About Audiophile Day:  Founded in 2016, Audiophile Day is celebrated annually on October 2.   Audiophiles of all ages exist around the world and come from a diverse range of backgrounds.  A significant number of them have made contributions to the world in the realms of music, equipment, processes, and music sources/formats.  The number of jobs created in countries around the globe by the existence of audiophiles is significant, and their positive economic impact is substantial.



Kyle Patrick Vaughn and Jessica Kelley in PGK Dance Project's INSIDE OUT


The PGK Dance Project (Peter G. Kalivas, Founding Artistic Director) is pleased to announce that the Company’s fall 2020 season will begin with INSIDE/OUT, an immersive virtual dance performance event, on Saturday, October 17, 2020 at 7:30 p.m. All tickets are $5.00 and may be purchased online at Following the purchase, the Zoom viewing link will be sent via email.

“I realize, to many people, that the world seems inside out at the moment,” said Peter G. Kalivas, “but that is what my company has been determined to do ever since our inception: take dance from ‘inside out’ to the people where it belongs, in ways that make it more affordable and easier to access. This immersive virtual experience will take place in familiar spaces and places, and will include moments where we can dance together."

With INSIDE/OUT, The PGK Dance Project welcomes audiences to join from the comfort and safety of home. Together, audiences (along with Peter and PGK Company members) will begin the evening with a fun, interactive “ice breaker” via Zoom. Next, audiences will enjoy a performance of Ollin (choreographed by Kymberly Kellems Fulton) and PERSPECTIVES, a new work by PGK Artistic Director Peter G. Kalivas. Both dance performances will be pre-produced as immersive dances for film, with sound scoring and video by The David’s Harp Foundation. The cinematographer will be Maximos Koukos.

Following the immersive virtual event on October 17, The PGK Dance Project’s fall 2020 season will continue with a live performance of Ollin on Friday, October 23, 2020 at 7:30 p.m. at The Palm Springs International Dance Festival outdoors. Next, PERSPECTIVESwill play as a film installation from November 5 – 8, 2020 in the front façade windows of ArtProduce in North Park San Diego (in partnership with MEDIA ARTS San Diego film production). The sound score will be audible on the sidewalk, for passersby to stop and appreciate the entire 5-minute film featuring a series of solos that combine to create perspective duets. Finally, The PGK Dance Project will present live performances of PERSPECTIVES and Ollin on Sunday, November 8, 2020 at 3:30 p.m., as part of Mission Federal Credit Union’s ARTWALK Little Italy. The performance will take place on the corner of Grape and India Streets.

The PGK Dance Project is a non-profit 501(c)3 professional dance theater group with a mission to bring diverse dance styles to a wider audience. We pick non-traditional dance venues that are an extension of the community they are a part of. We believe the audience is a collaborative part of our performance and we often arrange seating in a way that encourages interaction. The curtains don’t come down at the end of our shows, a DJ plays music, our concession stays open, and people often hang out to talk to new people.  

Since 1994, The PGK Dance Project's mission, purpose, vision has centered around creating places and spaces for all bodies and all stories. To create and produce diverse dance programs and performances of the highest quality made most affordable and easily available to ALL through creative community collaborations and partnerships that promote and represent diversity in entertaining, innovative ways that educate and develop audiences for dance.

Purpose: To create and maintain sustainable programming that supports dance artists and reduces barriers historic that otherwise limit public engagement with the arts.
