Festival starts in


Inspired by the events of the Radium Girls in the 1920’s, a woman’s body is taken through the motions of repetitious work and fatal radium exposure. As the bones absorb the green light, first with wonder and then resistance, the destabilizing effects sabotage the body, one fragment at a time.

Choreographer and dancer: Melissa McCracken.
