|A New Theater Work Designed Just for the Library Premieres in August and September|
Here's an amazing opportunity to experience the library in a way you probably never have before! Between August 31 and September 7, The Lucky Penny, an Atlanta arts organization, is premiering an innovative, new work of movement theater at the Decatur Library, 215 Sycamore Street, in downtown Decatur, free to the public. HIDDEN AWAY, the library at night has been described as "a collision of theater, dance, literature, sound and arresting visual installations that brings to life over 100 books from the library's collection." The work was created by award-winning artists Phillip Depoy and Nicole Livieratos as a tribute to the institution of the public library.
"These performances will entertain and charm you," says Decatur Library Coordinator Gina Jenkins. "We also believe they will remind audiences of the magic you can find at your library branch reading a book to your child, attending a program with a friend or accessing the internet with free Wi-Fi."
Twelve programs are scheduled. August 31, September 1 and September 5: 7:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. and September 6 and September 7: 7:00 p.m., 8:30 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. Audiences should gather at the library's front door on Sycamore Street for the performance they wish to attend. The library is wheel chair accessible. For more information, see nicolelivieratos.com or theluckypenny.org
