The Irondale Ensemble Project is as close as we come these days to the Elizabethan acting companies that once presented Shakespeare’s plays to the Earl of Leicester, Sir Francis Drake and the Virgin Queen of England. ...What is on offer is the miracle of the word made flesh. I wish you joy in it.” —Lewis Lapham, editor of Lapham’s Quarterly

Now an annual event at Irondale, Flicfest is a Festival of Feature-length Independent Choreography. Each evening of FLICfest will include two feature-length dance theater works followed by a performance cabaret in the balcony lounge.

FLIC aims to bring great performance to a new audience as well as create a strong sense of community and a forum for the exchange of ideas among independent choreographers.
