Luminarium Dance Company is proud to announce the fourth annual 24-Hour ChoreoFest, America’s only twenty-four hour choreography festival. On September 4, seven local dance companies will convene at the Dance Complex to pick themes from a hat and create brand new choreography overnight. The overnight creation period will be broadcast live on the internet, so that anyone can watch and interact with the creative process from start to finish in their own home. The participants’ new pieces will debut in concerts on Saturday, September 5 so that curious audiences can see just can be accomplished in one night. The 2015 participating companies and choreographers are Ryan P. Casey, Nicole Laliberte (Freedom Dances), Impact Dance Company, OnStage Dance Company and a special hybrid experiment combining Luminarium Dance with Monkeyhouse and Paradise Lost: A Movement Collective.

The 24-Hour ChoreoFest strives to build community in two ways; by housing several artists amidst creative process to strengthen the dance community, and also to uniquely engage the Boston area and audiences that enable the survival of the performing arts. New additions to the festival for 2015 include more opportunities for participants to strengthen their work and learn about their process; choreography workshops at the Dance Complex prior to the festival and opportunities to show the work created during ChoreoFest long after the twenty-four hour festival encourage participants to continue thinking about and developing their work. All profits from the festival will be used to sustain ChoreoFest and to fund Luminarium’s performing arts youth programming, keeping the spirit of discovery going all year long.

Tickets to Luminarium’s 24 Hour ChoreoFest can be purchased in advance by visiting the company’s website, www.LuminariumDance.org, or calling 617-477-4494. Tickets are available at the door while they last. Questions about the festival and culminating concerts can be emailed to info@luminariumdance.org, or please call 617-477-4494.
