Event Notes

Prepare to be dazzled by a new immersive audio-visual experience, where the arts surround you. From June 21st through June 23rd, you are invited to explore “Lumaria,” a vivid fantasia of animation and dance video projected from floor to ceiling across towering ribbons of fabric inside the Warner’s Nancy Marine Studio Theatre.

Created by filmmaker and digital artist Ryan Glista, featuring animation by Kristen Stambolic and dance by Carolyn Paine and Giovana Sánchez. Video originally displayed in an exhibit by RiseUP for Arts.


Open to students aged 13+, this intermediate/advanced contemporary dance class will start with warm up focusing on breath and build to technical exercises using control and balance-all using the awe-inspiring visuals of the exhibit as inspiration. The class will culminate in a choreographed combination during which participants are encouraged to film themselves dancing in the space.

Taught by Garet Wierdsma. Garet Wierdsma is the creator and director of the CT-based Garet&Co Contemporary Dance Company. Garet holds a BFA in Dance from NYU Tisch, and is a Choreography Fellowship Recipient for Sacred Heart University and the Young Choreographers Festival in NYC. Garet’s work has been showcased at Symphony Space, Ailey Citigroup Theatre, and The Warner Theatre. She also teaches at several schools throughout CT.
