Article: The Night Carnival brightens up Riverwest with magic this weekend by Bryon Cherry
This article was dedicated to the extraordinary Night Carnival held in Milwaukee’s Garden Park presented by Teatro di Affetto theater company. This will be the third annual installation of the immersive theatrical work. With the ephemeral nature of the Night Carnival only popping up for the one night a year, since its inception, it is truly wonderous experience. Nina Maybe, the article titled her as the de facto leader and the initial conceptor of the carnival, is quoted "Our Carnival Attractions are all rooted in interactions that encourage this kind of vulnerability. We want people to be brave. We want people to be the most authentic versions of themselves. Sometimes our authenticity can only be reached through fiction, through storytelling. Our goal is to facilitate spaces for this."
The sentiment behind the quote is something I would like to further explore in my writing. Using fiction, and story telling to facilitate the ability to be your authentic self is fascinating.
