Luminarium's 24-Hour ChoreoFest™
America's only 24-hour choreography festival
Welcome to Luminarium's annual 24-Hour Choreofest, an event that gives local artists the opportunity to create and present new work all within the span of one 24-hour period. From its participants to viewers, ChoreoFest continuously provides an engaging and educational experience—demystifying the genre of dance for those attending, and stretching the limits of choreography and artistic collaboration for those creating new work.

WHAT IS CHOREOFEST?
Luminarium pioneers this unique annual festival, in which five dance companies join Luminarium in locking themselves inside the famous Dance Complex overnight to create new work for a performance the following evening. Viewers are encouraged to watch the process unfold via live stream online throughout the 24-hour period.
It needs to be supported, hands down . . . People like the mayor, people from the white house—these important people need to be here to see how creative [Luminarium's ChoreoFest] is here in Boston.
