This event has ended.

"Once Upon A Time" pulls its viewers back into the awe and wonder we experienced while captivated by Cinderella, Momotaro, or any fantastical folk-tales. Like kids with flashlights under the covers, curled up with the Brothers Grimm, we have always been tantalized by the unbounded worlds fairy tales bring to life. Perhaps the most primary and democratic of all narrative forms, the fairy tale has swept up countless artists' imaginations and deployed their talents to create alternatives to our routine daily lives. Fairy tales distill our most instinctual fears and world views making them perfect for anyone with a fruitful imagination. Their concise form is often a springboard for improvisation, revision, and social critique. The rich symbolism and metaphor they employ help us clarify our emotions and understand the dangers and rewards of our actions within our cultures.
