 Philadelphia Dance Projects'   DANCE UP CLOSE

*For PDP’s Informance Wednesday, March 24 at 7PM *

*LILY KIND and surprise guests will come together for a  *

*“one-time-only talk show” featuring tidbits from her 'zine - How to Make a
Dance in America.*

Kind’s impressive choreographic and performance work derives from a
polyglot of influences from clapping games and hand jive, Lindy Hop, jazz
and post-modern improvisation.  Her convivial approach to what movement
elements are ripe for performance and exploration, in both straightforward
or theatrical ways, gives off an air of unassuming openness to the pleasure
and skill of dancing. She will show video excerpts of work and have an open
conversation with her special “surprise” guest collaborators, she says “adding
extra energy to the zoom zombie land.”

*Join us for the lively conversation *

*and real time interaction *

*FREE or pay what you will. *

*RSVP for zoom link:  **info at philadanceprojects.org*
