Both events are free to the public.
PART I: (takes place outdoors)
Actor & The Leading Lady
1pm and 4pm
4300-4398 Baltimore Avenue
(Those who sign up for tickets will receive an email pinpointing the exact location in the park)
“Actor & The Leading Lady” is a dance piece for public space examining how we embody, perceive, and perform power dynamics in real and theatrical relationships. The audience made up of intentional participants (like YOU!) and passersby will find the performers in RED and follow them on a journey that will bring us all to the same location. The work will continue to unfold as the performers bring out four tiny plywood stages (two 2×6 and two 2×4).
Dancers Chloe Marie Newton, Harlee Trautman, Katherine Kiefer Stark, Marisa Illingworth and Sean Thomas Boyt slide, spiral, jump, and fall along the narrow stages set to original compositions by Ajibola Rivers.
PART II: (indoors)
Epilogue: Falling Up
West Philly Ballroom and Latin Dance
4520 Baltimore Ave
“Epilogue: Falling Up” is a celebration embracing the effort, imagination, and collaboration around what it means: to move forward; to take a new place in an old story; to step out of cycles. This concluding free event will include a short interactive performance by the dancers accompanied by a singer, opportunities to support the work through purchasing drinks and cake, and space to move and talk about the work and the themes it addresses.
