Invertigo Dance Theatre: End of Year Movie Pop Ups
December 14, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
We’re celebrating the End of Year with an open heart by offering the community a free dance film screening featuring some of Invertigo’s memorable and historical dance pieces. On this evening we are featuring dance documentation of Formulae & Fairy Tales.
Formulae & Fairy Tales is a full-length work casting the life of Alan Turing, mathematical genius and World War II codebreaker, into the technicolor and mythologized ideas of his favorite film, Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. After the war, Turing was criminally prosecuted for being gay and forced into chemical castration. In 1954, he died by eating an apple laced with cyanide, an act eerily foreshadowed by Snow White.
The production places the cold, high-stakes world of mathematics, artificial intelligence, and cryptography alongside a vivid, twisted fairy tale palette. The choreography blends historical events, sexuality, gender identity, and our essential humanity. Sweeping video projections and an original music score create an immersive theatrical experience.
Be part of this memorable night featuring our incredible company dancers!
