Artist-in-Residence


Our inaugural artist-in-residence, renowned choreographer Mark Morris, created a month-long focus on dances set to music by American composers. In February, the celebrated Mark Morris Dance Group will perform two evening performances as well as a special Arts4Youth show for local school students. The company will also conduct a dance masterclass.

 

Plus, we are proud to present the Philadelphia Dance for PD® Symposium, a first-ever event including a workshop, class and film screening, all dedicated to exploring the impact of dance, music and community on the lives of people with Parkinson’s disease.

 

Rounding out the residency, Morris handpicked four musical films to be screened weekly, each showcasing a wide breadth of dance, music style and dramatic situation:

Feb 7: The Blue Bird (1940)
Feb 14: Love Me Tonight (1932)
Feb 21: The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T (1953)
Feb 28: Hallelujah, I'm a Bum (1933)

Tickets are limited so order early to ensure your seats for these lively, musical classics!
