The Avilion Arts Festival, that runs from September 16th through the 18th, will feature four ACT productions and a new Fandangos show.

Encore Productions include:

’Dance-a-long’ that is an audience-participation show designed by Bajoy tracing the development of popular dance;

’Missing Pieces’ by Villede Carter that features his original poetry accompanied by songs and dances; and

‘The Unicorn Tapestries’ created by Bajoy that recounts the story of ‘The Lady and the Unicorn’ tapestries now hanging in the Cluny Museum in Paris.

New Productions

ACT also features the premiere of Moon Aerandir’s new theatre work, ‘The Strange but Fortunate Tale of Padstow Jack’ that weaves a poignant yet hopeful story from a mermaid’s monologue and toe-tapping folk tunes.

The Fandangos, led by choreographer Moon Aerandir, present a thought-provoking new work, entitled, ‘Circus of Dreams.’ If it were literature it would be
‘mystical realism,’ if it were an art work you might associate it with surrealism or even Da Da, if it were a theatre piece it might bring to mind ‘commedia ‘dell arte’ or even ‘ theatre of the absurd.’ In short, this innovative dance work defies definition, but is a feast for the eyes with choreography that delights, costumes that enchant, and tunes that leave you wanting more from this energetic new Avilion dance company.
