Trade School: The undergird (solo) by Meg Foley

June 5 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on June 7, 2019 at 7:00 pm


Meg Foley’s The undergird began as a solo about death and grief as bodily experiences, that expanded into a quintet to encompass the collective experience of loss. Now in its latest manifestation, Foley returns again to the solo form, with the residual influences of the people and processes the work has gathered across its life. Developed using her singular improvisational practice “action is primary,” Foley’s masterful performance is crafted in the moment—painstakingly, rigorously. The undergird is a dance about mortality, birth, earth monuments and the body, alone and in congress. It asks: Where does one body end? What gets carried forward, and what remains?


Trade School is a festival and exchange platform celebrating the work of Philadelphia performing artists as well as creating connections with artist peers across the country. The first iteration, Trade School: PHL-LAX, produced in collaboration with Los Angeles Performance Practice, connects artists and audiences in each city, exploring differences and similarities in systems of support for contemporary performance, and discussing issues in self-producing and dissemination of work that resonate with both.
