Grounds That Shout! (and others merely shaking) is a series of performances in Philadelphia’s historic sacred spaces. Curated by award-winning choreographer Reggie Wilson, these original works of modern dance and movement explore relationships between religion, movement, race, and the body with a focus on the African American religious experience.
The series will culminate with a series of original performances by Meg Foley, <fidget>, Lela Aisha Jones | FlyGround, Almanac Dance Circus Theatre, and Tania Isaac, with accompaniment from members of the church congregations at three historic Society Hill churches. Attendees will move from one site-specific performance to the next in a procession through St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, Old Pine Street Presbyterian Church, and Mother Bethel AME. This cycle of performances will be staged three times over the course of the day.
