Philadelphia Museum of Dance

Saturday, October 6, 2018

3:00 PM-9:00 PM

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 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.
