If you are a current college dance major or have recently graduated (say,
in the last 3 years), I hope you’ll join us in celebrating the 15 year
anniversary of the Rocky Awards: Sunday, January 22nd, 2017 at 7 PM. The
evening will be an opportunity to look back, as well as a chance to look to
the future of dance in Philadelphia. This is where you come in.

Bethany Formica Bender has generously offered to reconstruct *mediocrity
hyper* by the incredible Reactionaries to honor the 15-year anniversary of
the Rocky awards.

Join her from 2-5 PM at Fringearts on Sunday, January 22nd to learn the
piece, and then at 7 PM to watch the show and perform. The show is about an
hour long, and you will be performing towards the end.

Please bring red clothing that makes you feel like the kickass future of
dance that you are.

There is a budget of $0 for the entire awards show; everyone is
volunteering their time. We are asking that you volunteer your time as well.

Any questions? Email Annie: Anne.MacG.Wilson at gmail.com or Bethany herself:

REACTIONARIES was a project for [choreographer/performer] Bethany Formica &
[designer] Mark O'Maley. Based in Philadelphia, and with a collective of
dancers, technicians, actors, designers, and other like minded artists,
they created site-specific, visually motivated movement that challenged the
norms of typical dance and theater presentation.
