At a moment in history when almost anything can be summoned on demand through the shiny bright rectangle in your pocket, many human experiences are lost. This troubling new development is the reason you must pay a visit to Dr. Mira. Experience crucial moments of reckoning with the future while a dancer posing as a doctor provides maximum cathartic release for you and one hundred of your newest best friends, a.k.a. your fellow audience members. No humans will be harmed in the making of this art.
Tickets on sale now at dixonplace.org/performances/dr-mira/. Runtime: 45 min.
This work is made possible through in progress performances and support from Dixon Place, Arts Letters & Numbers, Waxworks, Movement Research Open Performance, FringeArts Scratch Night, Glasshouse, Soundspace, and Leah Stein Dance Company.
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.
