Well worth watching.” — Laurie Lawson\, Electronic Link Journey\, “Smartly tailored to its theme and era\, and the direction and delivery of its thought-provoking narrative pack a punch and leave us wondering what really drives our educational system and who benefits the most from it.” — Deb Miller\, DC Metro Theater Arts \n  \nShowtimes\nAvailable for Streaming – Entire Festival   \nCredits\n  \nEd Altman (Frank\, Executive Dean)\, Adam Files (Kyle\, Director of Academic Development)\, Nicholas Miles Newton (Ben\, Assistant Dean of Student Achievement)\, Meagan Moses (Aimee\, Director of Enrollment Management)\, Jake Shore (Writer/Director) \n\n  \nContent Considerations\n  \nMental illness/suicide \nAppropriate for Ages 18+ \n\n  \nAbout the Artists\n  \nSince its founding in 1998\, Spin Cycle has co-produced shows by artists including Joan Rivers\, Anthony Rapp\, Gavin Creel\, Holly Woodlawn\, Alison Arngrim\, Alec Mapa\, Alice Ripley\, Karen Finley\, and Ain Gordon.

In this dream universe\, what happens when I can listen\, but I can’t move? or talk? What happens in the body when I sleep and wake up in another dimension? That transition that leaves us thinking and how dreams act being a source of subconscious information\, powerful and even terrifying. \n“June” by Anna Rose –\nJune is a solo work that explores female lineage and the societally prescribed role of women in the home and within the family structure. Delving into the personal stories and lives of my own mother\, grandmother\, and great-grandmother\, I engage with the physically and vocally embodied concepts of passed-down ancestral trauma\, and internalized sexism. Shifts in music and costume bring the viewer back to different eras in a non-linear fashion\, like memories surfacing from a multi-generational female past. June is a month\, a woman\, a dance\, a story. June is for all of the women who have been silenced\, erased\, confined to a life they did not choose or want. \n“Act Natural” by Britt Davis –\nI present you with a quarter-life synopsis\, which is as clear as an oxymoron – opposite ends of the linguistic spectrum joining together in a nonsensical\, sense-making statement. It’s a serious boss-lady infused with comic relief. It’s liberation with a side of leftover fear. It’s over-dramatic\, yet in its own right. It’s flirtatiously blended with brutal sarcasm. It’s sexy mixed with the comedic greatness of Lucille Ball. It’s a statement of a 20-something female-identifying international person of the 2020s trying to find some frickin’ balance. \nShowtimes\nAvailable for Streaming – Entire Festival   \nCredits\nCurated by OhOK Performance Group (Whitney Casal & Britt Davis)\, Venue at Theater Expedition Metropolis\, Filmed by Britt Davis and Whitney Casal\, Video Editing by Britt Davis\, Choreography and Performance by Whitney Casal\, Britt Davis\, Anna Rose\, Sofi Seta. \nContent Considerations\nAppropriate for all ages \n  \nAbout the Artists\nOhOK Performance Group was created in 2019 by American\, Berlin-based dance artists\, Whitney Casal and Britt Davis. These two friends and collaborators began moving together in 2011 while studying Dance at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. In their creative endeavors together\, Britt and Whit engage in a three-pronged approach through creation\, performance\, and teaching. Their choreographic works explore intricate and purposeful physical partnering\, blending in themes of relationality. \nThe aim of OhOK Performance Group is to propose a platform for creating interdisciplinary performance works\, collaborating with artists and institutions locally and abroad. With dance as the basis for their creations\, these women are open to exploring possibilities with musicians\, visual artists\, videographers\, and other artists alike. The name itself was inspired to encapsulate any artistic collaborators that engage in their processes.

DESCRIPTION:“Bon Appetit!” By Lee Hoiby and Julia Child “Bon Appétit!” is a comic culinary extravaganza that taps the wit and antics of one of America’s best-loved television personalities! Written by Lee Hoiby and performed by Susan Weinman and pianist Pen Ying Fang it is comprised of music draped over the words and gestures of Julia Child\, the mother-of-all-foodies! \nFollowing the Philadelphia premiere of this great work by Aurora Classical at the 2015 Fringe Festival it has become a crowd favorite selling out at its venue! \n“It’s hysterical\,” said Susan Weinman “although this production’s version of Julia is no more the real Julia than Dan Akroyd’s performance was\, she is more like a demented cousin and not at all meant to be a true depiction of this great lady. That said the recipe for Le Gâteau au Chocolat l’Éminence Brune is indeed Julia’s. We offer it in the spirit of the lady\, made by servantless American cooks.

We are guided by a desire to up-end theatrical conventions and create event-driven theater. The Berserker Residents are made up of three Philadelphia-based wizards of imagination – Justin Jain\, David Johnson\, and Bradley Wrenn. As collaborative performer-writers\, we aim to plow the depths of the ludicrous and downright silly with one hand\, while making a firm connection to our audiences with the other. We have been hailed as “daft\, ephemeral and joyous” by The Scotsman and have been praised for our “refusal to relinquish that unrefined creative spirit” by The New York Times. We are a Barrymore-nominated ensemble and have received commissions from Theater Horizon (PA)\, Ars Nova (NY)\, ASU Gammage (AZ) and The University of the Arts (PA). Our work has been published by Playscripts\, Inc. and presented at the Abrons Art Center (NY)\, The San Francisco Mime Troupe (CA)\, The Annenberg Center (PA)\, The Assembly (Scotland) and FringeArts (PA).

What if they were assigned to be pen pals as second-graders? In their heretofore undiscovered personal letters spanning half a century\, right up to November 2020\, we see their awkward friendship wax and wane in letters that borrow liberally (not conservatively) from Trump and Clinton’s actual public dialogue. You might be surprised who gets the last word!\nThe show is unapologetically satirical\, comedic\, engaging\, and cathartic. Further musing about larger ideas around status\, male and female power\, and the responsibility of how we\, as people\, might empower certain dynamics to evolve will be likely topics of post-show conversation among those who go on the journey of Dear Donald/Dear Hillary (Their Secret Correspondence). \nShowtimes\nAvailable for Streaming – Entire Festival   \nCredits\nSally Vahle\, Actress\nBob Hess\, Actor\nElaine Liner\, Playwright\nDonna Marquet\, Scenic Designer\nAdam Chamberlin\, Lighting and Sound Designer\nNoah Sargent\, Director of Photography & Editor \n  \nContent Considerations\nAppropriate for Ages 13+ \nAudience Instructions\nTicket buyers will receive a link to view the show prior to showtime \nAbout the Artists\nSally Nystuen Vahle\, Actress:\nSally is a member (12 years) of the 2017 Tony Award-Winning Dallas Theater Center’s Diane and Hal Brierley Resident Acting Company. ).

Through the use of live-feed technology\, participants are guided through a movement duet and conversation with a stranger in another room\, known only in this fleeting digital space. Being/With is a meditation on separation and connection\, loss and embodiment\, and the power of listening. \nPart solo journey and part virtual encounter\, Being/With builds poetic bridges across neighborhoods\, honoring the intimacy and immediacy of collaborative exchange. People with divergent life experiences move together\, share stories\, experience being seen and heard\, and together find the tender spaces to learn about each other. \nBeing/With takes place in two neighborhoods simultaneously: The Pearlstein Gallery in West Philadelphia and Trinity Church in South Philadelphia. In addition to signing up for a performance slot\, audiences are invited to visit the gallery spaces just outside of each venue. These galleries are a series of designed spaces where you can hear audio content from interviews with neighborhood residents. \nBeing/With is part of a larger series of events and activities that include Being/With: Home and Being/With: Workshops (both part of 2020 Fringe Festival)\, as well as a cumulative neighborhood interview archive that hosts images\, stories and conversations from the participants who reside in each performance location. \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n Health & Safety\nProof of vaccination is required to attend this event.

Learn more at \n \n  \nContent Considerations\nAppropriate for Ages 18+ \n  \nAbout the Artists\nWe are a professional performance design and production company\, specializing in audience-driven immersive and interactive theatrical events. We borrow from global theater and circus traditions to craft experiences that invite guests to play\, explore\, engage\, and imagine. Our methods create environments that elevate and transform audiences\, allowing them to leave with memories of a story they brought to life. Our main bases are NYC and Philadelphia\, yet we curate and perform work nationally\, internationally\, and digitally! \nIn July of 2016\, Cirque du Nuit was born out of an experimental collaboration with the event production company You Are So Lucky. Theatre director\, actor and circus performer Kaitlin Chin gathered a group of performers with various backgrounds in theatre\, circus and dance to bring life to their event Night of Fire–held on a Manhattan pier. The troupe showcased their various barrier-breaking entertainment skills to engage with event guests and provide spectacle on both a grandiose and intimate level. \nThen known as both “The Night Circus” and “Cirque du Nuit”\, the troupe continued to work with You Are So Lucky\, performing at both large and small-scale events– most notably their Halloween parties at the W.B Thompson Mansion in Yonkers\, NY\, and their mini-festival in July of 2017 (to which they received a write-up in Vogue magazine). Having created memorable performance pieces and improvisational moments at these events\, Cirque du Nuit caught a reputation of being professional\, organized and innovative. \nCirque du Nuit functions as both a standalone company producing independent work\, as well as a network of artists available to be hired for nightlife\, corporate\, or personal events. We intentionally bring on performers from all different experience levels\, backgrounds\, orientations\, and colors\, because to do otherwise would not make any sense.
