allowed|aloud is the culmination of two years of research and continued examination into the normalized animalization of women though literature, everyday dialog, and the preconceptions that follow. The research was originally to be presented at the Performance Garage, but due to Covid-19, will now transform into a dance film for this year’s Philadelphia Fringe Festival.
The film will run October 2-4, 2020 and tickets are $12.
While asking questions about choice, survival, and rebellion, allowed|aloud investigates historical waves of feminism in our country: the reactive elements, the cyclical elements, and investigate how women have taken to solving the misogyny and internalized sexism, while examining personal protest and identity. How do women adjust, re-adjust, break the mold, and forge ahead in vexatious situations? We bury, cover, shelter, fix, secure, rebel, and repeat.
Working under the umbrella of Britt Fishel and Artists, the group acts as a collaborative, project based company, presenting both live performances and dance films, in the Philadelphia community and beyond. Through research and performance, we aim to foster a better assimilation of the human experience, to democratize and normalize socioeconomic, political, and identity driven conversations that are both diverse and inclusive through intersectionality. Through the lens of a feminist perspective, we address our past, to better understand our present, to change our future.
