Philadelphia Dance Projects Presents Dance up Close 2013
Communications Strategy and Media Relations for the 2013 Season of Philadelphia Dance Projects Presents
Philadelphia Dance Projects opens its 2013 season with the Philadelphia preview of Act One from Wolf-in-Skins, an epic “dance-opera” created by choreographer Christopher Williams and composer Gregory Spears on January 25 and 26, 2013. Hailed by The New York Times as “one of the most exciting choreographic voices out there,” Williams draws his inspiration for Act One’s libretto from ancient Welsh lore, reimagining lost mythology through hybrid contemporary performance.
The season continues with SCUBA ’13 featuring Green Chair Dance Company of Philadelphia and The Real Shannon Stewart of Seattle, WA, March 22-23, 2013. For more information about Philadelphia Dance Projects, visit www.philadanceprojects.org.
Philadelphia Dance Projects (PDP) supports contemporary dance through Projects that encourage artists and audiences to more fully participate and engage in the experience and pursuit of dance as an evolving form. Since its inception in 1993, under the aegis of Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, Philadelphia Dance Projects has engaged stellar dance artists many of whom were enlarging the modern and postmodern vocabularies with personal and/or cultural explorations in both technique and content. PDP achieves its mission by presenting performances, workshops, classes, a dance-film fest, dialogs and forums for a broad-based audience including artists, aspiring artists, students and the general public. Philadelphia Dance Projects Presents is a full presenting series highlighting national and local contemporary dance artists. The successful series is introducing new artists to Philly and premiering work by some of Philadelphia’s finest contemporary dance artists.
PHILADELPHIA — Philadelphia Dance Projects continues to present exciting work through its partnership with SCUBA Touring Network, an opportunity for local, emerging to mid-career dance artists to begin to tour nationally while offering audiences the chance to see artists’ work from around the country. In 2013, this exchange takes place between Philadelphia’s Green Chair Dance Group and Seattle’s The Real Shannon Stewart. Performances take place March 22 – 23 at the Conwell Dance Theater of Temple University.
