Dance of the Lanternfly


Categories: Dance, Family

Dates: September 11, 2021 - October 2, 2021

Run Time: 60 mins

Venue: Cafe Ole


Dance movements are slowed down to interpret a lanternfly in motion through 24 poses of a second in time. Think Stanley Kubrick meets Eadweard Muybridge, as Philadelphia-based artist Dominique Ellis metamorphosizes to become larger-than-life. This is 2021: A Lanternfly Odyssey. You may spot the lanternfly throughout Historic Old City where Fringe Arts began 25 years ago.
