Come see a roster of Philly’s most talented artists perform new material from shows they are working on in this fast-paced sampling of contemporary theater, dance, performance art, and everything in between. Scratch Night features short performances by four-to-six companies/artists, offering an inside look at the future of performance. Join us afterward for a $5 meal in La Peg with the Scratch Night artists.

Apres moi, l’obscurité
Paige Phillips

Après moi, l’obscurité (After me, the darkness) is a new movement work by Paige Phillips created for three performers. Collaging together historical and contemporary references, the work explores injustices contemporary women face. A wild ride of vignettes feature sexually anthropomorphized swans, crippling nostalgia for “the way things were”, and references to Francisco Goya’s depictions of witchcraft. It will premiere as an evening length piece January 26th & 27th, 2018 at Mascher Space Cooperative.
