You & Me comes alongside Philadelphia area dancers and Ursinus College faculty members, Jeanine McCain and Karen Clemente to create You & Me Philly, an evening of music, dinner, art, and dance. You & Me Philly explores intimacy as it unfolds through performance in a non-traditional setting at Chestnut Hill United Church.
This performance and dinner is curated, performed, and directed in collaboration with Denver based artist Tara Rynders. You & Me Philly allows each guest the chance to create their own performance as they explore spatial and emotional intimacy through live performance, technology, video, music, and dance.
Highlights of You & Me Philly include site-specific dance, “one on one” – performances created by one performer for only one guest at a time, and a sit-down family-style dinner served to all guests. You & Me Philly questions all aspects of performance, including where a performance can take place; who are the real performers; how does performance change when it is being witnessed; and is a performance really a performance if it is only happening for one person?
Rynders and her collective premiered You & Me Denver in 2011 in her home in Denver, Colarado and has since toured the production throughout the United States including You & Me San Francisco at The Garage, You & Me Reno (NV) at the River School Farm, You & Me Emerge (MA) at Earthdance, and You & Me Evergreen (CO) at the Red Velvet Ranch. In addition, You & Me recently returned from a two-month European tour to Iceland, Finland, Germany, Austria and Ireland.
