Transports you to “a phantasmagoric wonderland enriched by the colors, aerial figures, and circus and animal images that were staples for Chagall” – The Washington Post

Inspired by Chagall’s kaleidoscopic vision of humanity, The Grand Parade depicts major events of the 20th century through music, dance, circus arts, and multimedia projections. In a sometimes sobering, sometimes euphoric, and always revelatory rush, The Grand Parade revisits the ecstasy of the moon landing, the frenzy of war, the magic of Houdini, the Civil Rights movement, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the AIDS epidemic, the contributions of pop icons from the Marx Brothers to Chubby Checker to David Bowie, and much more.
