Faerie

April 13-14, 2019 | Joe’s Movement Emporium | Buy Tickets

Alight is thrilled to dive back into the world of Faerie where we tackle notions of identity and aim to break down stereotypes, all within the mythical fairy realm.

During our NextLOOK grant residency in May 2018, supported by The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center and Joe's Movement Emporium, alight received funding for artistic research and community-based workshops to develop Faerie.

ABOUT THE SHOW

All depicted within the realm of magic, alight puts a lens to centuries of storytelling to feature the multi-dimensionality of these mythical creatures, and tackle misconceptions of how feminine characters are portrayed.

This April 2019, Faerie will perform again at Joe's as a fully developed and refined evening-length work open to all ages.

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

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

Leading up to our April performance, alight will host several special events connecting with inter-generational community members about the work. These public events are donation-based, movement-related, and inter-generational in nature - essentially, meant for all people of all ages!
