alight dance theater


Alight dance theater strives to generate and strengthen community through storytelling – interweaving a movement-based art rooted in collaboration that spans cultures and generations to entertain, illuminate, and educate.

Through the lens of innovation, we strive to create dialogue, explore expression, and communicate the heart of one another’s story.

Artistic Vision

Artistic Director Matina Phillips and Associate Artistic Director Eleni Grove develop work striving to exemplify movement storytelling. Blurring the line between real and abstract, the alight artistic team want their audiences to experience familiar elements of performance, ranging from movement, theme, text, and production elements, while also giving space for personal interpretation by challenging audiences to see past the known.

Greenbelt Connection

Alight was founded by Greenbelt resident Angella Foster in September 2010. The company resided in Greenbelt from September 2010 to November 2016, at which point artistic leadership was transferred to current artistic director, Matina Phillips. Alight continues to engage the Greenbelt community through performances and movement workshops, often supported by the Greenbelt Community Foundation.
