RISE: Relationship is Self Existing

WHAT: Come be part of a public space movement performance event at LOVE
Park in September, as part of the Philadelphia Fringe Festival!

Leah Stein Dance Company and choreographer Asimina Chremos are calling
Philadelphians of varied backgrounds and abilities to take part in a
communal performance project on site at Love Park.  We are looking for up
to 30 people to join us in creating, learning, and performing a 20-minute
group dance incorporating simple activities such as walking, smiling,
making eye contact, being aware of space, and standing. This dance is meant
to show how togetherness is a given, and that there is art in the everyday
movement of people in public space. Come learn techniques for mindfulness
in everyday life and make new friends!
