The festival runs through August 31 at Notre Dame de Namur Theatre.
This weekend, New Ground Dance Theatre Company's newest work, "Catalyst" will be the festival's highlight performance.
According to choreographer Coleen Lorenz, "Catalyst" "...is a story of believing in human possibility through the power of choice. It dives deep into the sorrow of our current state of existence and lifts into ideas of new potential and possibility for humanity."
"Catalyst" will be performed at the NDNU Theatre Friday, Aug. 9 and Saturday, Aug. 10 at 8:00 p.m., and Sunday, Aug. 11 at 3:00 p.m. For tickets, or more information, go to www.newgrounddance.com.
