How do we balance our bodies?
What does it mean to create an un-structured
society where humans are equal?
5 years after Almanac's founding, current company members revisit,
re-experience, and re-imagine the driving questions behind the company's
original production in Communitas: 5 Years Later. Starkly simple in its
design, *Communitas* is a meditation on balance through human structures,
and a deep exploration of individuality and cooperation. Wordless acrobatic
encounters and live music tell the story of the founding of society in
which all members are equals.

LOVE NOTES FROM OUR EXTENDED ARTISTIC FAMILY:
*"ALMANAC is a model for elegance, risk, freshness, and movement." "The
first time I saw Communitas, it was a captivating duet... Now, Almanac is
an established icon of Philadelphia whose ensemble has created numerous
pieces of truly original work that continue to awe and delight." "What a
great legacy you're building for circus and our city.*"
THANK YOU FOR FIVE YEARS OF LOVE & COMMUNITY.

*THIS WEEKEND! *
Almanac' joins a procession between three Society Hill sacred spaces, in
which performances by Philadelphia-based artists explore connections
between religion, movement, race, and the body.
Lela Aisha Jones
Three processions starting at 12:30 PM, 2:00 PM and 3:30 PM, will encompass
performances by each of the participating artists. The processions will
make their way through St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, Old Pine Street
Presbyterian Church, and Mother Bethel AME Church. The procession will
highlight both the broad narrative history of these sites and their
present-day status in a rapidly changing city.
