We are all travelers.

Set off on an intimate yet expansive journey that invites you to become both viewer and participant in The Garden, where an individualized sound score will gently guide you as you navigate the shifting terrain of the performance.
Conceived and directed by Nichole Canuso, The Garden includes original music by Michael Kiley and James Sugg to create a sprawling exploration of possibilities, executed on the smallest possible scale.

This highly individualized performance is meant for six participants at a time.  Following a successful preview run at this year's FringeArts Festival, The Garden opens for a premiere run on November 1st and runs for three weeks.  Don't miss out on your chance to grab a ticket to visit The Garden.

Tickets will go on sale October 10th.

The Garden was made possible by the generous support of the James L. and John S. Knight Foundation, The National Endowment for the Arts, the Wyncote Foundation, the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the Suzanne Roberts Cultural Development Fund and our fabulous band of Kickstarter backers.  Development of the work was supported by residencies at The Millay Colony for the Arts (NY) and The Orchard Project, a program of The Exchange.

All performances at The Powerplant Basement:
233 N. Bread Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106

How many people can attend a performance of The Garden?
The Garden is designed for six participants at a time.  No more, no less.  

I don't like audience participation. Is The Garden for me?
Audience participation often implies that you join in a portion of a performance that's being witnessed by the rest of the audience. In The Garden there is no "audience." Each traveler is on his or her own journey. There are gentle instructions to guide you from place to place, and you will interact with dancers and other audience members, but you will spend the majority of your time alone. The level of physical involvement is entirely up to you.

Does it take place outside in an actual garden?
The Garden does NOT take place in an actual garden. It takes place in the basement at Power Plant Productions in Old City Philadelphia. It's a beautiful, cavernous space directly under the Ben Franklin bridge on-ramp on Second Street. The title comes from a Jorge Luis Borges short story, The Garden of Forking Paths.
