Dance of the Fireflies:

An amazing all night event surrounding dusk and the emergence of fireflies into the city. The event starts with creating glowing firefly projects at the gallery and then builds into the night’s largest happening: the EMERGENCE of the FIREFLIES- as dancers in glowing costume take flight from the gallery in an orchestrated procession through the streets- all are invited to join the procession which will culminate in a choreographed Dance of the Fireflies.
