Ready About! Prepare to Tack! Batten down the hatches, hearties: works-in-progress are About Ready. Hey, it’s been a year, or two — and some ideas found the time and space to make it to full-length fruition, while others… aren’t quite there yet. Why shouldn’t they be in the fringe? Featuring short works, excerpts of new performances, and ideas that don’t fit anywhere else, About Ready is the place to go to find something new. Circus, dance, and theatre should all be expected. You decide if these ideas will sink or swim! Visit www.cannonballfestival.org for a listing of which of the finest artists — from Philly and beyond — will be featured each week.
About Ready is presented as part of Cannonball Festival, a satellite festival produced by Almanac Dance Circus Theatre and the Maas Building featuring over 150 events and performances of 24 original shows across 2 performance spaces and 21 days. Learn more at cannonballfestival.org.
