- Meet The Company
Annex Dance Company is thrilled to be returning to the Old City Jail for the 7th Jailbreak.
The 7th installment of Charleston’s most incarcerated music and arts festival is hosting an illusionist feat by local artists, artisans, dancers, musicians, comedians and more. An exhibit of optical illusions will transform the Old City Jail into a funhouse tribute to the minds of M.C. Escher and Lewis Carroll. Wander through the space with apprehension; and be prepared to lose yourself in a maze of visual and performance installations presented by Artist and Craftsman, The Art Institute of Charleston, and the Machiavellian geniuses of the local arts community. The newest components to the festival include a room dedicated to poetry, fashion exhibits, interactive jailhouse projections, and large-scale, perception-altering installations planted in rooms throughout the jail.
