Monday, April 1 at 7pm

The popular, long running works-in-progress series on the first Monday of every month.

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 is hosted and curated by a different artist each month, and features four to six short performances by local companies and artists, offering an inside look at the future of performance.

About the Host

Alexandra Tatarsky makes work in the unfortunate in-between zone of comedy, dance, performance art, theater and deluded rant — sometimes with songs. Pieces often incorporate absurdist characters and improvised word play. Current interests include humor & the abyss, self-loathing & complicity, clowns & politics, meaninglessness, hybridity, madness, parades, and acrylic nails. Basically, how words and worlds come together and fall apart. Tatarsky has performed original work and the work of others at venues including: Vox Populi, Werks Barehouse, Judson Church, Skirball, New Museum, Brooklyn Museum, Bronx Art Space, PSNY, MoMA PS1, The Kitchen, La Mama, The Brick, CPR, Gibney, and many bars. With Ming Lin as Shanzhai Lyric, they publish mini-complications of bootleg t-shirt poems. Writings on hyper-capitalism, mimes, nonsense poetry, and counterfeit culture are forthcoming in ArtReview Asia, Spike, and Garlands.
