Scoring The End

Rodney Murray Expands the Role of the Artist with an Ambitious New Solo Work, Sept 20-22

Multidisciplinary artist, writer, and provocateur Rodney Murray is excited to premier his new solo work, Scoring the End, at the Maas Outdoor Garden, 1325 N Randolph St, Philadelphia. Running performances September 20th through 22nd, this piece is being presented by the 2022 Cannonball Festival, a hub of the 2022 Fringe Festival dedicated to celebrating forward-thinking, adventurous, and risk-taking artists. This ambitious work is Murray’s second evening-length piece, arriving out of his innovative examination of interdisciplinary practice and contemporary performance. 

A dance in three movements, a tragedy in three acts, a presentation in crisis, Scoring the End examines the complex, nebulous, tragic, and romantic terrain of the contemporary theater. Created and performed by Rodney Murray, Scoring the End attempts to generate numerous frictions in our art, culture, and politics by asking how the 21st-century, post-pandemic body is invited to move and create within the world. This work is a slow-burning and urgent love letter to craft, individuality, movement, and aesthetics.

Being supported by MOtiVE Brooklyn’s For the Artists! inaugural artist-in-residence program, Scoring the End will have two weeks of development in Dumbo, Brooklyn at the end of August, before returning to Philadelphia for its premier. Murray, an emerging and local multidisciplinary artist, is a 2021 graduate from the University of the Arts currently making challenging and visceral performance works. His work has been developed in-residence at The Painted Bride Art Center and AUTOMAT Collective, and additionally performed at The University of the Arts, Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers, and Dixon Place in New York City. Recently, he was named a Future Art Writer by Mozaik Philanthropy, and his feature article The Circle of Life: Sacred Geometries and Other Forms, is forthcoming.
