New Amsterdam). She has toured throughout the USA (San Francisco,

*A Series of Informal Events!*

Sunday, December 17th | 5:00pm
at Mascher Space Cooperative | 155 Cecil B Moore, Philadelphia, PA, 19122
$5-10 Suggested Donation | No one will be turned away!

See The Naked Stark's latest project and give us feedback!  *Katherine
Kiefer-Stark, Sean Thomas Boyt,* and *Loren Groenendaal *will each be
showing work this month.  Wine and delicious snacks will be provided during
the feedback session with the artists.

The Naked Stark is previewing new material for Visible Structures, a
trilogy examining the age-old story of the hero's journey as a historical
construction and pop-culture phenomenon. The work looks at the story as a
narrative and as a set of conceptual frameworks for power and oppression.
The full length work premieres at Mascher: May 17-20, 2018.

Sean Thomas Boyt will be showing Golden Era, a brand-new duet with dancers
Marisa Illingworth and Margot Electra Steinberg. This romp superficially
investigates ideas of performance and intimacy through repetition,
conversation, and nearly synchronized dancing.

Vervet Dance, directed by Loren Groenendaal, will be showing a durational
improvisation, In The Light!
