April 29 and 30, SmokeyScout Productions wraps up its third season of Nice and Fresh, the performing arts series that features new works of theater and dance at unique venues in Northwest Philadelphia. April’s show, featuring new and return performers, will be at Cliveden’s carriage house in Germantown. This marks the last Nice and Fresh of our 15/16 season, and after 3 seasons of the series, we have presented 16 shows, more than 65 new works, featured more than with over 120 artists/performers.
“We have a unique Nice and Fresh a number of pieces are quite short, so we’ve brought in more of them—an especially high energy group of dance performances and artists. We’ve also got a short solo theater piece about shooting a dog, an experimental video play, and we’ve got Steve Lippe, Ed Miller, and Anna Flynn-Meketon acting together for a play about a dysfunctional work situation at a mythical historic house in Germantown, performed of course in an actual historic house in Germantown.” Josh McIlvain, series curator and contributor.
April’s line up of dance includes –
Dancers: Evalina Carbonell, Annielille Gavino-Kollman, Liu Mo, Meredith Stapleton, Asya Zlatina. Choreographed by Evalina Carbonell.
