This  fantastical and mythical dance work explores the under-considered culture and belief in fairy lore. Join us and see what happens when fairies and humans encounter one another. Performance themes include the power of belief, the struggle of human control, identity shaping and unpacking identity-related stereotypes. All wrapped up in a magical package even littles ones will enjoy!

  • Children 16 & under $12

ABOUT: Alight dance theater strives to generate and strengthen community through storytelling – interweaving a movement-based art rooted in collaboration that spans cultures and generations to entertain, illuminate, and educate.

Through the lens of innovation, we strive to create dialogue, explore expression, and communicate the heart of one another’s story.

ARTISTIC VISION: Artistic Director Matina Phillips and Associate Artistic Director Eleni Grove develop work striving to exemplify movement storytelling. Blurring the line between real and abstract, the alight artistic team want their audiences to experience familiar elements of performance, ranging from movement, theme, text, and production elements, while also giving space for personal interpretation by challenging audiences to see past the known.
