A first time collaboration by choreographers Lesya Popil and Eleanor Goudie-Averill at the Philly FringeSep 5th, 2012 | By Steven Weisz | Category: Archived Articles
For Members Only, to be presented at the 2012 Philly Fringe Festival on September 22nd & 23rd, will offer audiences a first time collaboration by choreographers Lesya Popil and Eleanor Goudie-Averill, along with visual artist, papermaker and sculptor, Nicole Donnelly. Featured will be dancers Lindsay Browning and Hedy Wyland. All three artists explore ideas of membership, public and private space, disappearance and emergence, truncated views, and segmented bodies.
Witnessing the performance that comes out of these explorations, members of the audience will gain access to restricted and expanded views, dismemberment and inclusive reduction. Intimate memories will be made manifest in a stunning visual environment.
“For Members Only” will appear at the Mascher Space Co-Op (155 Cecil B Moore Ave) on Saturday, September 22nd at 7 pm and Sunday, September 23rd at 3 & 7 pm. For advance tickets, contact The Fringe box office at (215) 413-1318.
