About the event

MARS HILL, NC – On Saturday, July 27, 2024, 4:00-7:00pm, Trillium Arts hosts Taking Flight, an afternoon and evening of new choreography, film and a guest appearance by Orion - a barn owl. The public event will take place at The Red Barn Studio at Odonata Farm, 5640 Paint Fork Rd, Mars Hill, NC 28754.

Taking Flight is the culminating public event for Trillium Arts’ 2024 ACE (Asheville/Chicago Exchange) Fellowship in Dance with Xavier Núñez (choreographer

and dancer with the Joffrey Ballet Chicago), Tim Whalen (Mates for Live film director) and two Joffrey Ballet dancers. During their Trillium residency, the creative team will begin work on the second in aseries of dance films titled Mates For Life. The first was inspired by whopping cranes. The next iteration is motivated by barn owls, which, as do whooping cranes, mate for life. The intimate interpretation inspired by birds’ movement will engage both supporters of

dance and conservation, resulting in heightened awareness and support for both causes. Guests at Taking Flight will experience an open rehearsal of Núñez’s new barn owl choreography; view a film screening of Whalen’s Mates For Life: Whooping Crane; and meet Orion, a barn owl under the care of Carolina Mountain Naturalists’ Carlton S. Burke. Appetizers and beverages will be provided.

Tickets: $30, available at www.trilliumartsnc.org/events 

Space is limited. Advance purchase is advised.
