Danceworks' Fairy Queen Fantasy will enliven the Lynden this weekend

The latest in a series of creative collaborations with arts organizations will unfold throughout the grounds of the Lynden Sculpture Garden on Friday, June 19 and Saturday, June 20. Danceworks is presenting a tour de force adaptation of a piece by Purcell called Fairy Queen Fantasy. The performance involves 53 dancers aged 7-77, along with a host of musicians.

I went to a rehearsal last night and I was quite captivated by the performance, even in the rough form of a stop and start rehearsal. The action moves throughout the grounds, weaving around and through many of the sculptures (as you can see from the photos.) Here are a small selection of images. To see the complete set go to my flickr album.

For more information about the performances go to the Lynden Sculpture Garden website.

Full disclosure: I am serving as one of the Lynden's Artists in Residence for 2015.
