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.

With indoor venues closed, outdoor crowds discouraged and audiences encouraged to stay home, Artistic Director, Pamela Hetherington, saw new opportunities to present her work that just were not feasible before COVID-19. “Producing a live tap dance and jazz music concert for longer than a two-show run is extremely cost prohibitive. Another side effect of that is: a short run doesn’t give us the chance to explore new material fully or feel comfortable to take risks. Since I already own a dance space with wood floors, the dancers and the band can easily set up there, once a week, and we can dive into an open format that allows for flexibility, improvisation and virtual audience interaction, still in the moment,” says Hetherington. One more bonus: “this will be the biggest amount of space we have ever had to dance in! Usually, we perform in jazz music settings or venues that aren’t exactly set up for tap dance.”
