Proceed with Caution

Posted September 20th, 2019

September 20–22, 2019

Proceed with Caution grapples with personal, social, and global security and trust in the present-day—a time of global violence, the Trump presidency, mass shootings, and the #MeToo movement. A group of performers explore security through dance, video projection, and spoken and recorded words

$20 / 90 minutes


Refreshed and expanded after it’s premiere in the 2018 Fringe Festival, the work directed by Darcy Lyons is back to take the stage at one of Philadelphia’s best venues for dance. Expanded and updated over the past year, Proceed with Caution includes a new twenty minute section about security after 9/11. The central theme of the work comes from security expert Bruce Schneier. He writes: “Security is both a reality and a feeling and they’re not the same thing… The foundation of security is trust, both personal trust and global trust.”

The piece begins to address these questions: How do humans build trust in dance? How do we build trust with each other? How do we build trust in the world at large? How do we address and assess our fears about personal safety? How do our personal feelings of security intersect with global security? How do we make an impact on security through art and activism? With the support of projected video dispersed throughout the piece, the group of performers tell raw stories in their own voices and bodies of their real life experiences of feeling safe, feeling scared, and being truly endangered. The new hour-long version evolves as it moves from the personal to the global, addressing modern issues and how they affect our individual and collective associations and understandings of safety within an increasingly turbulent humanity. Proceed with Caution does not claim to have all the answers, but it’s worth experiencing because the work takes a brave step into exploring one of today’s greatest challenges that everyone can relate to: security.


Lyons and Tigers creates dance theater work for the stage, performance installations, and dance films. We revel in crossing those fabricated lines that often restrict dance making. We enjoy experimenting and taking risks. We are highly collaborative within the company and our work is often co-created with video projection, visual art, and text that is spoken, recorded, and projected. Our work pushes the edges of discomfort, crawls into the risky places that make our hair stand on end, make our hearts softly open to the world, or pull us into one of the many places in between. This production is not suitable for children and may contain triggering content.

The Insanity of Mary Girard

Posted September 19th, 2019

September 19–22, 2019

In 1790, the wife of noted Philadelphian Stephen Girard awoke to find herself in the mental asylum at The Pennsylvania Hospital. How did she get here? Why has her husband not come to have her released? Is it all a mistake, or is she truly insane? Join us on the inside where we find out more as the tale unfolds.

$25 / 80 minutes


Sarah Heddins plays Mary Girard in this immersive, thought provoking, and fascinating historical drama about the roles that men and women were expected to play in early American society, and just what can happen when you don’t live up to the expectations of your station. The play centers primarily on Mary’s time in the Pennsylvania Hospital, as told by her and a “greek chorus” of inmates, who help her see clearly the path that lead her to be placed in there with them. This story is based on a letter Stephen Girard wrote to his brother in 1787 where he lamented about,

Having been so foolish as to marry this unfortunate vixen… I treat her properly but at the same time I despise her as much as it is possible to despise anyone… I hate her like the devil and note with pleasure that this feeling increases from day to day.

A powerhouse of actors in this ensemble cast bring the story to life as it is presented in the round, in an intimate theater space. Join us in the basement of the Pennsylvania Hospital as we learn more about Mary and those closest to her, and what led to the tragic fate of Mrs. Stephen Girard.

Written by Lanie Robertson Directed by Mariangela Saavedra Starring Neena Boyle, Jim Broyles, Sarah Heddins, Jessica McDonald, Willam McHattie, Teresa Nutter, Sarah Palmatory, Browning Sterner, and Sean Vermeire

$20 / 55 minutes


About Elba Hevia y Vaca

Born in La Paz, Bolivia, Elba Hevia y Vaca began her study of classical Spanish dance at the age of five. She studied with great masters in Spain for over 20 years, and later joined the Ana Martinez Flamenco Dance Company and Raquel Peña Spanish Dance Company in Washington D.C., where she was a soloist. In Philadelphia, she continued her study of modern dance, jazz, and contact improvisation from various Philadelphia artists. In 2000, Hevia y Vaca founded Pasión y Arte out of a strong and intensely personal conviction that highly-stylized traditional Spanish Flamenco dance is a perfect vessel to empower women. These values have been reflected in the eight original, critically acclaimed works she has created for PyA, and in the numerous grants, fellowships, and accolades awarded to Hevia y Vaca and PyA under her direction. In addition, she was nominated for a prestigious Pew Fellowship in 2018. She conducts master classes throughout the US, has taught at local Philadelphia universities, teaches various levels of Flamenco at at her Overbrook Studio in West Philadelphia, and has been teaching at Franklin & Marshall as a Senior Adjunct for the last 20 years.

About Pasión y Arte

For more than a decade, Pasión y Arte (PyA), Philadelphia’s premier all-female contemporary flamenco dance company under the direction of Elba Hevia y Vaca, has been embracing artistic excellence in performance, education and community engagement focused on modern feminist flamenco. Deemed a world classic by The Philadelphia Inquirer, Pasión y Arte continues to strengthen flamenco’s legacy as a classical form while also expanding the trajectory of modern feminist flamenco through its conservatory classes, performances, and national tours. In eight original productions, and through its presentation of the 2012 and 2014 Philadelphia Flamenco Festivals, PyA empowers women through self-expression by embracing bold experimentation that challenges traditional flamenco gender stereotypes.

Medusa Volution

Posted September 17th, 2019

September 17–20, 2019

A true story of sex, power, and monsters.

“Feel of an ancient epic” (playstosee.com)

“Deliciously sticky … unexpected rapid fire of emotions“ (BKReader.com)

“Conceptually ambitious” (culturecatch.com)

Medusa Volution takes a darkly comedic look at what is really going on with Medusa and her sister archetypes, intertwining their stories with those of modern womanhood, ultimately with a hopeful urge toward transcendence.

$22 / 90 minutes

$5 tickets on September 17th only!


In Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Medusa was a young maiden in service to the temple of Athena. When she caught Poseidon’s attention her fate was sealed—the god forced himself on her in the temple, yet Athena condemned Medusa for having lost her purity, and turned her into the hideous gorgon monster we know, with snakes for hair, so dangerous and hideous that her gaze will turn a man to stone.

Medusa Volution is inspired by her story—by the loss of her humanity, and her condemnation and isolation as a punishment for her sexuality meted out by both male and female gods. Medusa the monster is but one in a Pantheon of female archetypes whose stories are the morality plays of the patriarchy.

“Medusa Volution packs a millenia-spanning deconstruction of the Othering of women…”  (culturecatch.com)

” …unabashedly and successfully delves deeper into the histories of Medusa, Salome and Eve…” (BKReader.com).

“…the truth-seeking Chorus dance, chant and curse the unwritten inaccuracies of Medusa’s plight…” (stagebiz.com).

“… disturbingly familiar (…) play written by an artist and a lawyer” “…mastered all the perceptions of Woman presented in the story: docile, beautiful, scary, vengeful, life-giving, and anything in between.”  (playstosee.com).
