September 10 + 11, 2019
Dumpster Dance for Garbage People is not a solution, it’s a recognition of a process. A bizarre fever dream of aggressive camp dance, it embraces so much wrong that it’s right. We are all garbage—own it and feel the fantasy. Dumpster Dance for Garbage People: welcome to the void.

Bio: Prudence Anne Amsden has recently received her MFA in dance from Temple University and is an emerging interdisciplinary artist in Philadelphia. Once a native of California she has a degree from Mills College in Art History. Through her developing career she has worked with dance artist Molissa Fenly, Shelly Senter, Merian Soto and Awilda Sterling-Duprey, and Lela Aisha Jones. Since moving to Philadelphia, she has become involved in the local drag and queer performance community and now works to bring not traditional drag and experimental improvisation dance together whenever she can. As an artist she is interested in improvisation, performance, drag, video, surrealism, kitsch, camp, horror, humor, feminism, unicorns, garbage and glitter. She is a self identifying dumpster fire, and love to attract and work with people who identify the same way.
No one will be turned down due to lack of funds.
