Faerie
Friday, May 11, 2018 . 7 PM

Location: Joe’s Movement Emporium

alight dance theater will create a fantastical and mythical dance work exploring the under-considered culture and belief in fairy lore. Faerie – referencing the world in which fairies inhabit – will examine the prevalence of fairies, their connection with humans and common misconceptions of both types of creatures. In a realm of “in-between,” existing alongside our version of reality, fairies and humans encounter one another. Employing the magic of imagination and storytelling, Faerie will inform contemporary perspectives on a range of themes including the power of belief, the struggle of human control, identity shaping and unpacking identity-related stereotypes.

Happenstance Theater presents the Cabaret Noir: A Film Noir inspired theatrical montage. This series of dark, comic vignettes reveals Femmes Fatales and fedoras, trench coats and torch songs, intrigue, suspense and shadows. Featuring the six players of Happenstance Theater in a virtuosic display of physical comedy, object manipulation, and period style, music played on multiple instruments, and characters costumed in vintage clothing. Performed by Mark Jaster, Sabrina Mandell, Karen Hansen, Gwen Grastorf, Sarah Olmsted Thomas and Alex Vernon.

“…a glimmer of story, a hatful of characters, a whisper of atmosphere, a smorgasbord of music and a scent of mystery. Those who love Film Noir will be delighted, those who don’t care for it will be charmed and amused…” – Broadway World
