Pass the Hat
FDR Park Boathouse
An interdisciplinary work using dance, poetry, theory, video, ropes and boats to draw our attention to how vulnerability and loss converge to bind us to each other, tear us from ourselves, transport us, undo us and implicates us in lives that are not our own. This performance will be outdoors at the Boathouse at FDR Park in South Philadelphia.
Signs at the parking area will direct you to the stage area. There is no official seating, bring your own blanket or chairs. We will limit audience size to 25 and require that everyone practice social distancing and wear a mask. Extra masks will be available. Appropriate for all ages.
This event has been cancelled.
Free RSVP (Limited), Pass the Hat donations encouraged
About the Artists
Them Heavy Sabbat consists of Lindsey Huster, Sarah Miller, Josie Newman & Danielle Redden. This company has performed together in various iterations at Night of 1000 Kates, an annual evening of other world making and ecstatic femme decadence using Kate Bush’s craft as the source material.
Sound, tech & lighting support by Jay Plus.
Writer and co-director Danielle Redden is a poet and performing artist who was born in Philadelphia and is still here. They co-direct Night of 1000 Kates, perform with Vaudevillains NYB, a feminist anti-racist mummers brigade, and directed the Tidal Schuylkill Boat Parade (2011 – 2018), annual crush art to the eight miles of the Schuylkill River that rises and falls with the gravitational pull of the moon.
Choreographer and co-director Lindsey Huster is a mover and performing artist based in West Philadelphia. They recently completed Headlong Performance Institute’s artist residency and were selected for the Leih Stein Dance Company Studio Works. They are the choreographer and a former captain of the mummers brigade, the Vaudevillains. They participate in other Philly dance and movement opportunities, the most recent being Night of 1000 Kates. They believe that dance helps you communicate with your past, present, and future and can heal your heart.
