The NWCT Arts Council hosted the Litchfield Hills Creative Festival on Saturday, August 19 in Downtown Torrington. The UP! Umbrella Project, presented by Pilobolus dance company, was headline this year’s festival, through a collaborative effort with the Warner Theatre. First conceptualized with MIT, the Umbrella Project is an interactive spectacle that transforms participants into collaborative performers. Visitors were given a light-up umbrella and instructed by Pilobolus dancers to become part of a choreographed movement piece.
