Formed in 2015, Megan Flynn Dance Company is a non-profit company based in Philadelphia that strives to present contemporary dance works exploring authenticity and celebrating vulnerability. The company, comprised of seasoned dance artists from Philadelphia and New York City, is committed to engaging with the community through performance and dance education, from traditional theatrical stages to unique venues and public spaces. Recent performances include: FringeArts’ Fringe in the Market at the Reading Terminal Market, FringeArts’ Festival Launch Party at La Peg, Koresh Artist Showcase, and Muhlenberg College.
MFDC has garnered the attention of several dance writers following the well-received premiere of “Dances with Socks” in the 2015 Philadelphia Fringe Festival. Critics recognized Flynn for her “disciplined craftwomanship” and “expansive, full-bodied dancing” (The Dance Journal, 2015), and MFDC performances as “a marley full of magnificent dancing, reminding us that art strengthens community” (The Dance Journal, 2016). Along with her “stellar group of collaborators” (Broad Street Review, 2015) Flynn tackles the complexity of stubbornness and how it shapes individuals and relationships in “We’re all a little bit stubborn”. The performance will feature an original musical composition by Alan Terricciano.
