Experience: A dance on a 30 foot drywall structure. Attempted human flight. Casually walking up a wall. Radically formal, free range reverence for the past. The poetry is just a series of punchlines.
Dance-theatre artist Mira Treatman will share performances, live and on screen, at the Da Vinci Art Alliance gallery space. Bring your curiosity and leave with a renewed appreciation for simple acts and human architecture.
7:00 pm Gallery Opens
8:00 pm Performance of Dr. Mira
Experience the meaning and the magnitude of the 57th longest suspension bridge in the world. This dance-theatre experiment meets curated walking tour features 60,000 tons of steel and one performer. Find yourself contemplating the space between Philadelphia and Camden, elevated.
Take an open workshop with Mira at 954 Movement Collective in Philadelphia. In "Generous Performance-Making" you'll engage with other performers in a theoretical playground. There will be space to test dance hypotheses in a literally and figuratively open studio. This is a workshop for thinking bodies to discover the bridge between a studio practice and a performance. There will be ample amounts of time allotted for reflection, discussion and writing. Bring water, snacks and a journal for writing. Cost: $10, no one turned away for lack of funds.
After an intense period of creating new work, I am delighted to share my research and performance documentation with colleagues and community. I'll give a lecture-demonstration and then provide a generous amount of time for an open discussion.
This event is free and open to all with a $10 suggested donation to help support future development of this work.
