Magda & Chelsea: The Vulgar Early Works
The Vulgar Early Works is an evening-length concert by the dynamic Philly-based dance/performance duo Magda & Chelsea. The work presented at JACK is recombination and composting of everything the ladies have been up to since they met, and it is meant to lead to a conclusive transitional mind-blow of epic proportions. The material the artists are drawing from contains as their pieces always do self-love, subversive humor, feminist spit, and a sexual, angst-ridden cry against society. The genre? Oh, somewhere between TED Talk, modern dance, therapeutic seminar, stand-up comedy, and abstract theater.
Magda San Millán and Chelsea Murphy began collaborating in 2012, while studying at the Headlong Performance Institute in Philadelphia. Since then, they have been making raucous dance/theater work together. Their first joint project, Rooster & Snowball, has been presented at Jumpstart LiveArts, DanceNOW at Joe's Pub, and New Dance Alliance. Their second collaboration, Singer/Songwriter, was shown by ThirdBird and the Effervescent Collective. They have premiered work through several festivals, including the ReMix Festival with Susan Rethorst, the SoLow Festival and SwimPony's Cross Pollination series.
Please note that seating is limited at JACK, and any pre-purchased tickets will be released at five minutes before the start time to the waiting list (should there be one).
