About the Event

Fairy Sighting is an opportunity for visitors to experience something magical in their peripheral vision. Using light, shadow and performance, Fairy Sighting plays with the relationship between magic and theater and our desire to be taken in by mystery. One night only, looped live performance in and around the stones. Choreography collaboration from Dana Dotson.
