Alight premieres ‘Women of a Forgotten War’
Maryland-based Alight Dance Theater, a four-year-old dance ensemble, will premiere Frontline: Women of a Forgotten War on Saturday, October 4 at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. at The Bowie Center for the Performing Arts.
A world premiere by Artistic Director Angella Foster, Frontline: Women of a Forgotten War will tell the story of women from different walks of life who lived in Maryland or Washington D.C. during the War of 1812 through a fusion of dance, narration and live music.
The program will also feature a reprise of Wayles Haynes’ Dependent and live music performed by Bedlam, a colonial music ensemble. Dependent investigates the public’s perception and personal experiences of military families in this contemporary era of war.
