Arcane: A Tale of All Hallows’ Eve
Company C Contemporary BalletThrough Oct 30th
Celebrate Halloween with Company C Contemporary Ballet’s colorful “Arcane” performance at Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture. Enjoy lively dancers from the spirit world, thrilling choreography, and eerily enchanting music in a ballet suitable for families with children as well as anyone who loves Halloween.
Discover the spellbinding original story of Arcane, the celestial star who sits at the hip of the harvest moon. Each Halloween, when the veil between life and death is most thin, Arcane descends to Earth. She brings with her the Voice of the Voiceless, and with this voice animates those caught in the netherworld — those who have left something undone or unsaid.
The 2016 production features three new sections, an original score, Day of the Dead costumes and decor, Pacific Islander poi ball spinners, and lots of stage magic and effects to bring the story to life.
