Here is what Janna and Mira say about their work:



"I am married to a Puerto Rican who could barely speak a few words of

English when we met 10 years ago. Now my wife is fluent in English, and I

can sputter only a few loving sentiments in Spanish. Not only is this a

personal pain point (and deeply embarrassing), this is a serious problem

that Americans have -we resist the notion that we aren't the only ones in

the world. I believe this world view has been internalized and sewn into the

body. This piece is a vehicle to finally learn Spanish through part

documentary, part somatic-movement-multi-disciplinary performance. I will

explore the resistance, the embarrassment, the science and the underlying

racism that perpetuates my mono-lingual nature, and I'll do it. I'll learn




"I seek to destroy the social-choreographic divide. Using nursery rhymes and

familiar songs as a point of departure, I will work with a cast mixed of

professional performers, dedicated dance audience members, and social

instigators ranging in age from 22 to 60 to complete a project I started

about two years ago. "Supernatural Displays of Yearning," is a collaborative

exploration into grief, trauma, and desire."



Get What You Need (GWYN) is a work in progress showing platform that allows

movement artists in the Philadelphia area to show work and get feedback on

their artistic process monthly. Created by multidisciplinary artists

Zornitsa Stoyanova, GWYN has been a facet to the Philadelphia dance

community since late 2014 and helped over 40 individual artists. 


This year marks the expansion of GWYN into a city wide performance support



GWYN Residency program is almost entirely created by donated space and time.

It is made possible by the generous support of The Fidget Space, The Art

Room, 954 Dance Movement Collective, Cardell Dance Studio, Community

Education Center, The Beard Cave and PhiladelphiaDANCE.org.
