Philadelphia, PA – ‘Après moi, l’obscurité’ (After me, the darkness) is a dance by Paige Phillips, in collaboration with a cast of three female performers, that will run from January 26 -27, 2018 at the Mascher Space Cooperative, 155 Cecil B. Moore Ave, Philadelphia. Tickets are $15 in advance on or $18 at door.  The work examines a myriad of social and political injustices that women have been forced to endure. By incorporating aesthetic and contextual references from the Renaissance, mid-century, and today’s pop-culture, the content lays witness to the longevity of such indignities. A wild ride of vignettes feature sexually anthropomorphic horses, Francisco Goya’s depictions of witchcraft, and contrived frivolity, amounting to a bold rejection for nostalgic ideals of purity and femininity.
