    “We launch movement with our mouths... Dance is in the stomach. Dance is in the palate. Dance is in the teeth... We envision a sort of meal in motion, we eat everything, we eat anything, all the time. We are an orchestra in motion, self-fueled... The essence is jammed down the throat. You don’t want to die stuffed. You swallow the message without having read it. You swallow reality. You digest conflicts.” – Boris Charmatz

    Saturday, October 6, 2018

    3:00 PM-9:00 PM

    Barnes Foundation 2025 Benjamin Franklin Pkwy

    • Everyone

    On Saturday, October 6, see the Barnes Foundation transform. From 3 pm to well past its usual closing time, the museum comes alive with dance in nearly every corner. Wake up your body and mind by joining a group warm-up with French choreographer Boris Charmatz. Wade through the Solo Forest, a collection of simultaneous solos. Feast on dance on film. Power up at a food truck. Join the soul train.

    End the evening with Charmatz’ danse de nuit—a work for six dancers assembling in a public space at night. danse de nuit radically rethinks choreographic assembly and grapples with Charmatz’ observation, “In (our) public spaces (now) there are many more armed soldiers than (unarmed) dancers.”

    At Philadelphia Museum of Dance, observe one moment, participate the next. Explore what it means to you to experience dance in a public space. Visit drexel.edu/phlpmd to plan your day.


    Support for Philadelphia Museum of Dance has been provided to Westphal College of Media Arts & Design by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage. Philadelphia Museum of Dance is produced in partnership with the Barnes Foundation. Performances of manger are presented in partnership with FringeArts.

  • Tartuffe

    Wednesday, November 7, 2018

    8:00 PM-10:00 PM

    Mandell Theater

    • Everyone

    Directed by Peter Reynolds
    By Molière, Adapted by Ranjit Bolt

    In 1664, Le Tartuffe was banned because it presented a comedy where those who display the most piety prove the most corrupt. Mauckingbird, Philadelphia's professional LGBT Theater Company, in collaboration with the MPiRP, turns its lens on Moliere’s all-too-relevant play about duplicity and those who fall for it. An irresistible second wife, a son determined to wed his boyfriend, an all-seeing maid, and a sister who smells a rat all add to the merriment in Moliere’s timeless tale of unchecked hypocrisy.

    Show Schedule
    Previews November 7 & 8 | 8:00 PM
    Open November 9 | 8:00 PM
    November 10 & 14–17 | 8:00 PM
    November 11 & 18 | 2:00 PM

    MPiRP is made possible in part through a grant from the Samuel P. Mandell Foundation.
