Olaf and His Girlfriend: A dance theater world premiere
A special-commission for the festival, based on a short story by the pioneering Black American writer Ann Petry, best known for her novel, The Street. This neglected short story about star-crossed lovers appears in Petry’s short story collection, Miss Muriel and Other Stories. The Fête Arts is a production company based in Barryville, NY founded in 2020 by Broadway performers Colin Cunliffe and Ron Todorowski. Note: this is a ticketed performance. The performance will be followed by a short conversation between director Sarah Parker and Emmy Award-winning journalist, author, and historian Janus Adams, host of The Janus Adams Show on WJFF Radio Catskill.
