Chicago based, Salty Lark Dance presents Lighthouse, an evening of dance works choreographed by Artistic Director, Madeleine Reber (Chicago, IL) and Guest Artist Tricia Gelmini (Yellow Springs, OH). The works in this concert are tied together through shared themes of navigation and mapping, and weave connections between personal history, embodied memory, and sense of place. Employing distinct movement vocabularies and poignant imagery, Lighthouse evokes the vulnerability and fallibility of human experience.

Cultivating Oneness Reinventing Expression

Our Mission: To be an interactive art installation that opens up conversation about what all human beings have in common; to challenge each other and help each other grow through meaningful collaborations; to strive to understand and express the core of humanity.

The city of Fort Wayne is teeming with local talent. This project seeks to act as a bridge among artists in our community to hopefully result in meaningful collaborations that resonate with people from all walks of life. We aim to achieve this through seminars, workshops and conversations about culture, history, biology, sociology, aesthetics, linguistics and many other fields of study with the goal of understanding what it means to live fully as a human, and applying the information to our performances and collaborations.

What is The Core?
-A 12-14 ft. structure with tunnels, crevices, nooks and crannies.
-Will ideally be a stage upon which inter-disciplinary performances will take place.
-Will be a challenge for meaningful collaborations.
-Will represent the collective core of our being as humans.
