Courtney Hunter and Guest Artists
Saturday, September 16
Splintered Glass explores the human desire to understand what lies beyond the surface of reality as we know it. It examines the ethics of Artificial Intelligence, challenges the apparent facades of our world and brings iconic Philadelphia sculptures to life. Everything we think we see has something more beyond it . . . will you take a look?
Note: Strobe lights are used during the performance.
Learn more about this show from its choreographer, Courtney Hunter, over at the FringeArts Blog.
Debuting in the 2017 Philadelphia Fringe Festival, Splintered Glass features original choreography from Courtney Hunter, a local dancer making her choreographing and producing debut to the Philadelphia dance scene. The concept for her piece examines ethics surrounding Artificial Intelligence and humans playing God. It was inspired by HBO’s Westworld, a television series about Artificial Intelligence. Guest artists are Tiffany Delio and Daniela Galdi of the Blind Faith Project Dance Company. The Blind Faith Project will perform a piece inspired by Rene Magritte’s The Son of Man. Additional choreography by Daniela Galdi will breathe life into the history of local Philadelphia statues and sculptures, including the Freedom Sculpture by Zenos Frudakis. It will include music from artists such as Muse, Brand New, Ramin Djawadi, and Rag’n’Bone Man. Doors open at 7:30pm.
