Faerie Keeps Flying in Greenbelt!

Supported by the Greenbelt Community Foundation, we will be performing excerpts of Faerie in outdoor spaces in Greenbelt, Maryland. See below for details.


UPCOMING EVENT DETAILS

Faerie In The Park

August 4, 2019 | Schrom Hills Park, Greenbelt, MD | FREE

Alight is thrilled to continue to share the world of Faerie with the greater DC area.

Next up: alight will present an excerpt of Faerie at Schrom Hills Park in Greenbelt, Maryland. This is a free, interactive, outdoor performance!

Alight values the contributions of community members and seeks opportunities to work directly with the community to create movement art.

This iteration of Faerie is supported by the Greenbelt Community Foundation.

ABOUT THE SHOW

All depicted within the realm of magic - through movement - Faerie puts a lens to centuries of storytelling to feature the multi-dimensionality of these mythical creatures, and celebrate the notion of individuality.

Faerie was first performed for the Danceacostia Festival in summer 2017 at the Anacostia Arts Center. From there, it was further developed through a generous grant from the NextLOOK residency of The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center and Joe’s Movement Emporium, including a public performance, in early 2018. Since then, Faerie was recently presented again at Joe’s Movement Emporium in spring 2019.

Outside of the professional performances, alight has hosted several community movement classes within the theme of Faerie around the greater DC area.
