The Reading Theater Project and JCWK Dance Lab are thrilled to announce In Nature’s Studio: Real Bodies, an outdoor performance event at the Reading Public Museum Arboretum, 500 Museum Road, Reading, Pennsylvania. The performance will take place Sunday, July 10, 2022, from 5:30pm to 7:00pm, and is free to attend.
The landscape and walkways throughout the Arboretum will become micro-stages where actors, dancers, and musicians simultaneously perform, some spanning the 90 minutes of the performance event and shorter pieces being performed multiple times. All performances use the park setting and Real Bodies exhibit as inspiration and are appropriate for all audiences. The audience can wander the path on their own or sign up for a guided tour.
This project was inspired by the Reading Public Museum’s exhibition, Real Bodies. This powerful exhibition explores life by displaying real, perfectly preserved human bodies and more than 200 anatomical specimens. More than a simple display of human specimens, Real Bodies will connect audiences to a deeper sense of what it means to be alive.
“In Nature’s Studio is collaboration between three distinct organizations in Berks County that are coming together to create community through education and art making. I get excited about the ways that the artists and REAL BODIES exhibit are engaging to create something unique to and for Berks County,” said Jessica Warchal-King, Director of JCWK Dance Lab.
Artists include Matt DeAngelis, Madison DJ Fields, Henrik Fotis, Jeanette Fotis, Brad Gale, Richie Maldonado, Kimberly Patterson, Jessica Pennington, Adam Richter, JCWK Dance Lab (Cady Monasmith, Arielle Ridley, and Woosoon Kim) and Trio Jolie (Crystal Jordan, Robin Lilarose, Kirstin Meyers). The production will be coordinated by Vicki Haller Graff and Jessica C. Warchal-King, with support from Kayla Laucks and Stacy Laucks.
