Grimm: A Dance and Storytelling Performance

When: February 29, 2020   and March 1, 2020

Where: Schenectady Light Opera, 427 Franklin Street (2/29/2020) and The Arts Center of the Capital Region (3/1/2020)

What: Nazmo Dance Collective and New York Folklore Present “Grimm” – an evening-length, issue-driven dance and storytelling production that immerses audiences in the world of fairy tales. Three fairy tales, “The Frog Prince,” “Cinderella,” and Caribbean female figures such as “The Soucouyant” are portrayed through movement and storytelling to present important themes that relate to topics of social concern, including gender and racial issues and immigrant disenfranchisement. Though fairy tales are often associated with children’s folklore, the stories are filled with profound adult content.

2/29/2020 Free participatory workshop from 5:30 – 6:30  p.m.; Dance Performance begins at 7:00 p.m. (Schenectady)
