Half Key Theatre Company presents Airswimming by Charlotte Jones Sept 8-24 at the Walnut Street Theatre Studio 5 as part of the Philly Fringe Festival. Set in 1920’s Ireland, Airswimming is based on the true story of two women imprisoned in a mental hospital for daring to challenge society’s definition of womanhood. Forgotten by the world, Dora and Persephone come together for one hour each day to clean and find connection. Through sheer force of will, friendship, and a penchant for Doris Day, they redefine their world and resist confinement for over 50 years.
1927 Texas: two sparring sisters bring avant-garde performance to their unsuspecting rural neighbors. Think Horton Foote meets Tristan Tzara: live music, live video, live DADA.
In this surreal world, transformation is always lurking. As layers overlap and shed, the hairsnail paves its path to grow into its full potential
Gunnar Montana transports us once again, this time to a brutal underground nightclub where no f*cks are given, and fierceness is always welcome. Fantasy, fetish, and carnal desire are all in fashion so leave your inhibitions at home because inside KINK HAÜS, anything goes. That is, if you can get past the doorman.
A story in light and sound. A performance in and out of the round. Follow a young man up the fire escape, through the sliding glass doors, to a world where curiosity consumes innocence, where friendships crystallize in the pressure of responsibility and misfortune. Drip Symphony debuts with Wedgwood on the Green.
In LIFE LINES, strangers collide and are changed forever, empty rooms listen in, and women find their power in flight. Mixing circus arts, dance, and live music, LIFE LINES unspools three women’s stories of rebuilding after sudden changes. Tangle presents an all-new performance of aerial dance and vertical drama in the 2017 FringeArts Festival.
