Special Limited-Run Event

Immerse yourself in the “unpredictable and imaginative” (American Theatre) world of acclaimed theater troupe Double Edge Theatre. Inspired by the multi-layered paintings of Marc Chagall, The Grand Parade is an original world premiere event that fuses physically daring spectacle with evocative music to create a thrilling, kaleidoscopic exploration of the 20th century.

Conceived by Artistic Director Stacy Klein and the Double Edge ensemble with original music by renowned Russian composer Alexander Bakshi.

“Work on The Grand Parade has been a wild and revelatory experience – from learning that women are still facing the same century-long struggle, and that lessons of war and economy have gone unheeded, to the amazement and sheer fun of peoples’ continued attempts to fly, to invent and to laugh in spite of it all. With Chagall as our muse, we have dared our way through the century’s chaos, trying to find our own thousand
ways to fly.”

— Stacy Klein, director

“Double Edge's artists surround us with stunning visual imagery, haunting vocal harmonies, musical accompaniment, and jaw-dropping aerial feats.”
