Vandershtok: a (web)site-specific journey
Dylan Seders Hoffman
September 27-October 4
$5 – $15
A flower grows through a crack in your floor. A hidden CD, nestled in dirt, encircles the stem. Find a dusty desktop. Load the CD. Blank screen. Nothing. Close your eyes. A whirring jolts you awake. The screen reads “Upload Complete.” Green light seeps under your door. Reach for the knob. Turn. Enter.
Explore the digital realm of Vandershtok. Let your desires lead you as you travel through the immersive world. Through the choices made by each audience member and the moments of chance embedded in the piece, no two performances are the same.

Dylan Seders Hoffman is a director, performance artist, and actor based in New York City and Cleveland, Ohio. She was most recently seen performing Off-Broadway in the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene’s production of The Sorceress. Dylan’s devised work has been presented in Philadelphia at the CEC, Bryn Mawr College, Moore College of Art & Design, and a West Philly kitchen. She has performed in the dance works of Headlong Dance Theater, Boris Charmatz, Linda Caruso Haviland, and Lela Aisha Jones. Dylan is a proud alumna of both Headlong Performance Institute and Bryn Mawr College where she studied Dance, Theatre, and Jewish Studies graduating magna cum laude and receiving the Jane Wilkinson Arts Prize for outstanding contributions in the arts. As a director and performance artist, Dylan creates kaleidoscopic dance theatre that exists on proscenium stages, in libraries and kitchens, and most recently, online. She uses her creative work to investigate questions she has about heritage, culture, time, and memory. In her Philadelphia Fringe Festival directorial debut, Vandershtok: a (web)site-specific journey, Dylan investigates how the digital realm is able to bring people together, blur the line between the audience and the performer, and hold space for both choice and desire.
