    When it comes to retelling the story of Dracula, it seems like there couldn't possibly be anything new under the sun to say.

Independent dancers banded together to produce the strong mixed program Magnetc Drift at the neglected Magnetic Theater in Reynoldstown in May. Choreographer Nicole Livieratos got up close and personal with poet Patricia Henritze for the intimate ongoing series Proximity.
