Boys and Girls Ultimate: State Championships
Teams must qualify.
“Unusual movement in a public place will capture your eye, call your attention to the present, and expand your awareness of your surroundings…Site-specific refers to the fact that these dances take a particular place as both the inspiration and setting for the dance.”
from Site Dance edited by Kloetzel & Pavlik
Science Leadership Academy students have been working with the Leah Stein Dance Company to create a collection of alternative performance pieces as part of the Art in the Open festival along the Schuylkill River. Each performance is inspired by its specific site as inspiration. As you watch the dances notice the ways that they interact with the the different sites. Each piece is the product of extensive observation, experimentation, and collaboration. Allow yourself to take in the full range of possibilities that the performances create. We hope that these performances inspire new ways to see and experience this part of the city.
Thank you for your support!
