Trillium’s newest collection of dance and movement theatre – Fables, Foibles, & Fairytales Flawed – features stories, myths, and folklore, some familiar, some freshly made.
The show will be at the Historic Lewis Theatre in Lewisburg the weekend of Nov. 3-5, at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and a 3 p.m. matinee on Sunday. Tickets are only $15 each, and $10 for students or AmeriCorps members.
Local artists Michael Buttrill, Henry Hill Jr, Carli Mareneck, and Devin Preston will all have new pieces in this concert, along with performances from guest artists Angela Dennis, artistic director of Alchemy Dance Project in Morgantown, and Daniel Tobin, professor of theatre at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg.
“We tell stories,” says Artistic Coordinator for the concert, Devin Preston. “I mean, as humans, that’s what we do. It’s how we’ve passed down information, values, morals, and our shared experiences for thousands of years. And there’s lots of ways that those stories can be told, which I think is at the heart of this concert.” For tickets or more information, call the box office at 304-645-3003 or go to trilliumperformingarts.org.
The program is presented with financial assistance from the WV Division of Culture and History and the National Endowment for the Arts, with approval from the WV Commission on the Arts.
