Three pairings between local book artists and choreographers explore the unique challenge of how a book can become a dance.
Philadelphia dance companies interpret handcrafted and unique books, selected from many submissions by Philadelphia Center for the Book members.
Featuring collaborations between:
Here[begin] Dance & Ananda Conolly
Movement Brigade & Rebecca Kelly
Stone Depot Dance Lab & Jude Robison
The choreographic creations will be followed by a discussion with the Choreographers and Book Artists, moderated by Philadelphia Center for the Book’s Curator, Mary Tasillo.
The performances will continue throughout the weekend at the historic Christ Church Neighborhood House, 20 North American Street in Old City on Saturday May 28th at 7 & 9 pm and Sunday, May 29th at 7 pm. These performances are co-presented by Philadelphia Dance Projects and made possible by a grant from New Stages for Dance, a program of Dance USA/Philadelphia.
All three works are world premieres and explore different aspects of the natural and the organic world.
