WV Art on Display: Celebrating 35 Years at Trillium!

On 1982 the Dusty Road Dancers and Zenith Dance Theatre merged to become Trillium Performing Arts. Beth White was with Dusty Road and Carli Mareneck was with Zenith. They decided that collaborating would be good for the community and it has been for 35 years.

The name Trillium, which is a West Virginia flower, shows the merging and blending of different people from different parts of the country. It also means “of the mountains”.

They started in church basements, then moved to the old bank building on the corner of Washington & Court Streets in downtown Lewisburg. In 2007 Trillium moved into the historic Lewis Theatre on Court Street North. There is a live event almost every month, including 3 annual performance concerts, Friday Night ALIVE!, DJ Dance Parties, and other special events.

Trillium has grown from mostly dance to a true performing arts organization that includes dance, music, theatre and film. They celebrate and collaborate in the creation of original performance works. Their mission is to encourage artistic expression and creative opportunities through education, participation and performance.

In 1999, Beth decided to create Trillium Performing Youth. Carli is the current director. TPY is for ages 13-18 years of age and are conducted like a professional dance company. Carli says, “Young dancers work with several teachers and choreographers…the training emphasizes self-expression.” TPY travels to schools, senior centers and festivals to perform original works.

Several former TPY students have continued on to college majoring in dance and are now professional dancers, teachers and choreographers.

In May, Trillium will be presenting a new work for schools and the public called “Weathering the Elements”. This show incorporates science, dance, movement and theatre. There will be plenty of special effects too! Third graders from around the county will come into the Lewis Theatre for the free concert. Then on May 19 & 20 at 7:30 pm the show will be open to the public. For ticket information call 304-645-3003.

Like Trillium Performing Arts on Facebook to keep-up with all the events. There is even a Murder Mystery Night coming soon! For more information about Trillium visit trilliumperformingarts.org

Patrick4CMPLTshrp "LBSPY is the best thing that has happened in Greenbrier County since I have been here for seven years. Maybe the whole state.... a first class operation and a lot of hard work," Patrick O'Flaherty (pictured above), The Irish Pub, Lewisburg, WV

Donating = Loving

LBSPY remains D.I.Y. in nature and it takes hundreds of hours a month to research and write, and thousands of dollars to sustain. If you find any joy and value in it, please consider making a one time or recurring monthly donation of your choosing, between a cup of coffee at The Wild Bean and a good dinner at Food & Friends
