Founded in 2008, Fidget is a platform for the work of Megan Bridge (choreographer) and Peter Price (composer/video art), who bring in additional collaborators depending on the needs of each project. Bridge and Price have created more than twenty original works that involve live performance, sound, and visual design. Fidget’s work has toured throughout the US and internationally in France, Germany, Poland, South Africa, Bulgaria, Colombia, Austria, and Switzerland.
In 2009, Bridge and Price opened Fidget Space, a warehouse live/work space and experimental performance venue in Kensington, Philadelphia.
Legacy and historicity is an important aspect of Fidget’s work. The company has cultivated relationships with master artists in its lineage in experimental American performing arts, for example with the John Cage Trust, with composer Robert Ashley, with electronic musician Bruce Haack, and with choreographers Lucinda Childs, Steve Paxton, and Lisa Nelson.
Fidget’s mission is to create and support experimental and interdisciplinary live art, bringing audiences closer to process and performance. Fidget achieves this through
Producing and touring new performance works.
Providing space for local artists to create at the Fidget Space in Kensington.
Facilitating conversations between artists and audiences.
Offering historical and philosophical contexts in order to encourage critical thinking.
This work is grounded in the collaboration of founding artists Megan Bridge and Peter Price.
