Cannonball disrupts traditional arts presenting models by centering artist-to-artist curation\, pooling and redistributing resources to provide small-scale\, high-impact production opportunities for wild\, under-resourced performances\, while building a sustainable arts ecosystem from the ground up. In its inaugural year in 2021\, Cannonball produced 28 unique works over 21 days for 150 performances in a single venue during the Philadelphia Fringe\, welcoming over 2500 audience members and winning 12 weekly audience picks and three overall Fringie Awards.

The show isn’t just happening on stage. It’s happening in your DMs. And in your kid’s eye rolls. In your hook-up agreements. In your attempt to actually compost this year. During your daily subway cry. It’s all the things we don’t say about the things we DO say. \nLightning Rod Special (The Appointment\, Underground Railroad Game) offers a satirical scrutiny of the free speech debate and the rapidly shifting terrain of civil discourse within our hyper-visible social-media-centered world. Characters careen through different microcosms of American culture in a searing look at how trepidation and performativity infect all aspects of our lives.  \nPhiladelphia-based performance company Lightning Rod Special specializes in raucous and contemplative works that scramble theatrical conventions and intellectual assumptions. SPEECH continues their investigations into lightning rod topics\, exploding complex questions with precision and play. \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n “Brutal and brilliant”—The Philadelphia Inquirer \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n Credits\nCreators: Shayok Misha Chowdhury\, Scott R.

Like scientists\, we begin each project with a hypothesis and\, following artistic investigations\, find our way to complete pieces of theatre that twist the ordinary into alien\, provoke debate\, and stir what lies dormant in the corners of an audience’s mind. With big hearts\, we tackle lightning rod topics in ways that scramble theatrical conventions and intellectual assumptions. Exploding complex questions with precision and play\, Lightning Rod Special makes live performance from the ground up. \nShayok Misha Chowdhury is a many-tentacled writer and director based in Brooklyn.

Food is community\, food is power\, food is legacy\, food is memory\, food is love\, food is home\, food is life. Food has the capacity of bringing folks from different backgrounds together. Food is personal history\, oral history\, and oral tradition. Artist Mike Durkin plans to look at the role food and recipes play in the Kensington area. Whether it’s a recipe that has been passed down from generation to generation\, or the recipe we’ve made because it makes us feel good\, recipes hold special places in our lives. By tracing the past\, present\, and future stories around the food we can forge deeper relationships with our neighbors as well as the environment our food comes from through story-sharing circles. Mike\, alongside Mural Arts\, will be partnering with Kensington-area community groups focusing on houselessness\, food insecurity\, community development\, as well as neighborhood artists and leaders. \nThe story-sharing circles will culminate into constructing a recipe book as well as a presentation and participatory community meal. Mike will explore rituals for the participant\, like only making a meal during a specific holiday\, using a specific type of frying pan for the meal\, or listening to specific music while cooking. With select participants\, Mike will collaborate to create an artful response to their contributed recipes. These could take the form of video\, writing\, audio\, photography\, sculpture\, or performance. In addition to this\, we will look at the physical impact of making food by cooking some of the recipes. For example\, if we are making tortillas\, we would look at how our body moves in the stretching of the dough\, the smells\, the sounds\, the emotions\, and the stories that surround it. The action of getting our hands is just another way to relive the recipes. The aim of the project is to look at the diversity of community members to tell the story of Kensington through recipes. \nAppropriate for ages 7+ \n  \nContent Considerations\nFood access and food justice \n  \nAbout the Artist\nMike Durkin (he/him/his) is a large-bodied multidisciplinary social practice performance artist residing in Philadelphia and New York City. Mike is guided by the intersection between art and the everyday. With his performance group\, The Renegade Company he has created site-responsive social practice productions exploring houselessness\, food access\, place\, and gentrification. Favorite Fringe Renegade directing credits include: (Kensington) Streetplay\, Animal Farm to Table\, Damned Dirty Apes!\, The Hunchback of Notre Dame…A Mute Play\, and Bathtub Moby-Dick. He is currently developing a performative cookbook that looks at the role recipes play in communities incorporating dance\, video\, and communal meal making. Upcoming projects will be held at the University of Central Arkansas\, the University of Houston\, Louisiana State University\, and Michigan State University. Mike has held residencies with Revolve Art Gallery in Asheville\, NC\, Space at Ryder Farm\, Drop Forge and Tool\, the Hambidge Arts Center in Rabun Gap\, GA\, and the Greenhouse Lab with The Orchard Project.

The plot unfolds in the apartment of a painter creating a triptych to illustrate the phases of Black Womanhood. When friends introduce him to a potential model for the final painting\, assumptions unravel and the true power of Black women is acknowledged and celebrated. Under AlexandraEspinoza’s direction\, the production will feature Akeem Davis\, Ciera Gardner\, Keith Livingston\, Natajia Sconiers\, and Brian Anthony Wilson. \n  \nDirector Espinoza has a rich connection to the piece: “Wine in the Wilderness was the first “classic” play I read that spoke directly to the Black community with no translations\, code switches\, or cultural exposition for a non-Black audience. That felt refreshing\, liberating\, and exciting. It’s important for audiences to know that the conversations we are having today about how to build a better future for our communities have been happening for generations.”\nEspinoza hopes the production demonstrates “that there are as many ways to be a Black person in search of liberation as there are Black people on this planet. We are stronger in our multiplicities and the first step in building community is the simplest and yet most complex of all – listening to each other.” \nPerformance runs until October 9\, 2022.

Memories of gestures and scores. A self-portrait of a 21st century artist. \nFrench choreographer Jérôme Bel (Gala\, The show must go on\, Cédric Andrieux) continues his renowned portrait series\, this time examining himself. Through a combination of lecture\, archival video excerpts\, and live dance\, Bel constructs a genealogy of the driving forces behind his work—what he calls an “auto-bio-choreo-graphy.” He reflects on the doubts\, commitments\, failures\, and questions present throughout his career and creative process. In this impassioned illumination of the motivations of contemporary performance and postmodern dance\, the personal becomes entangled with the artistic and the political.  \nFor ecological reasons\, Bel and his company stopped traveling by plane in 2019. This performance\, therefore\, relies on a unique collaboration with Philadelphia dancer Megan Bridge (Fidget). Bridge serves as director and translator\, in addition to portraying Bel on stage. She embodies Bel’s honesty and vulnerability\, holding tension between humanism and formalism. \n​ \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n “A portrait of the choreographer which is as sensitive as it is conceptual.”—Florian Gaité \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n Content Consideration\nThis performance contains scenes of nudity\, and has been written to reach ages high school and up. \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n Credits\nProducer: R.B.

Cathy has performed at the Kimmel Center\, the Pennsylvania Convention Center\, Longwood Gardens\, West Chester University\, Settlement Music School; and also at World Cafe Live\, Please Touch Museum\, The Sedgwick Cultural Center\, The Tin Angel\, Andrea Clearfield’s Salon\, and many more venues in the Philadelphia area. She has also performed in New Jersey\, New York City\, Baltimore\, and Eastern Europe. Cathy is the accompanist for the Gleeksman-Kohn Children’s Choir of Settlement Music School. At West Chester University\, Cathy studied with Benjamin Whitten while earning her Bachelor of Music in Keyboard Performance. She also holds a Master of Music from the University of the Arts. Cathy has been a member of a number of rock bands\, including The Kwerks\, whose eponymous first CD contains two of her own songs. Cathy has composed choral pieces and children’s songs\, including “Rising\,” “Peace is the Way\,” and “Thank You for Giving.” Cathy’s keyboard skills have been described as “awe-inspiring” and “playing with such ease\, precision and emotion.” Kwerks album reviewers said “they keep the listener immersed in their musical soup” which contains “fetching hooks and swirling vocal harmonies” and “very original songwriting.and excellent arrangements.” Cathy’s piece for piano\, flute\, cello and women’s voices\, “Apart (2020)\,” was composed between April and June of that year\, and represents the emotions and struggles of the COVID pandemic. The video she created in a remote collaboration includes an accompanying text\, and interpretive dance by Emily Kline and Melissa Faller of Emme Dance Collective\, Lancaster\, PA. It was premiered at a virtual concert given by The Philadelphia Women’s Music Project in March of 2021\, and is a featured video in WHYY’s House Concert Series. \nCathy is a native of Easton\, PA\, and now resides in Wyndmoor\, PA. \nMichael Leibowitz (b. 1981) is a composer and music educator living in Philadelphia\, PA.

Michael has studied composition privately with Randolph Coleman and Lewis Nielson at Oberlin Conservatory\, Andrea Clearfield and Norman Davis at the University of the Arts\, and Howard Frazin at the Longy School of Music. \nMichael’s compositions explore the expressive possibilities of sound and the relationship between the composer\, performer\, and audience. At times subtly beautiful and at others violent and alienating\, the audience is both challenged and rewarded by attentive listening. Chance elements in many of his works allow the performer great interpretive freedom and expressive potential. Michael’s works have been performed both across the United States and internationally by artists such as Michelle and Kimberly Cann\, The Jasper Quartet\, The Borderlands Ensemble\, The Perspective Collective\, and Philadelphia Opera on Tap\, among others. His short opera\, For Love of Country\, co-written with librettist Jeremy Basescu was recently premiered to much acclaim.
