Dance of the Lanternfly

Dominique Ellis

September 11-October 2

2021 Fringe Festival

1 hour


Cafe OleMap

Wheelchair Accessible

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.
