The Philadelphia Matter - 1972/2020
This past Fall award-winning choreographer/director/writer David Gordon assembled a virtual Pick Up Performance Co of more than 30 Philadelphia performers for a new hour-long screen work specifically for the FringeArts Festival, The Philadelphia Matter - 1972/2020. The work was made via remote video material shot by the performers with iPhones to sophisticated cameras - Gordon then dissected, assembled, and collaged this movement with visual scores and archival works in collaboration with video artist Jorge Cousineau. The cast also included Wally Cardona and Pick Up Performance Co(s) members Karen Graham and Valda Setterfield.
This performance was originally intended as a live piece to be performed in the Neighborhood House Theater. Gordon re-imagined the piece to fit into a virtual performance space. A filming of the piece will be shown in the Christ Church Gardens. This event is free, but registration is required to ensure social distancing.
Major support for The Philadelphia Matter - 1972/2020 has been provided by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.
