Children's Dance Theatre's Elfwyn's Saga

During the early settlement of Iceland, a girl named Elfwyn is born blind after a curse is placed on her family. Guided and protected by the mysterious Hidden Folk, she learns to rely on other senses to perceive the world around her. When a rival Viking clan uses a treacherous magic to sow the seeds of discord among her family, Elfwyn’s gift of clear perception is all that stands between her community and its self-annihilation. An imaginative musical score and hundreds of dazzling costumes help the young dancers of the Children’s Dance Theatre bring this spectacular story to the stage. Family event. All ages welcome.
