the summer is for fireflies

a series of movement and music pieces performed in public spaces

about

the project

Because we love Chicago. Because dancing is often more fun than peeling potatoes. Because the imagination sometimes needs a nudge to get out of bed. Because little graceful stunts are wonderful. Because public space ought to be used for public good. Because a song can maybe save your life. Because we think the cityscape could use a little shining. Because the Summer is for Fireflies.

Conceived and created by Fannie Hungerford and Joshua Dumas, these fireflies are an ongoing series of short (like under ten minutes) music / movement / street theatre pieces performed in public spaces, intended for any accidental onlooker. We hope to see you on the streets.

Oh also, WBEZ has produced a really nice story about last summer's goings-on, specifically about our Birdfeeder piece. Please take a look and have a listen.
