Philadelphia, PA – ‘Après moi, l’obscurité’ (After me, the darkness) is a dance by Paige Phillips, in collaboration with a cast of three female performers, that will run from January 26 -27, 2018 at the Mascher Space Cooperative, 155 Cecil B. Moore Ave, Philadelphia. Tickets are $15 in advance on www.danceboxoffice.com or $18 at door.  The work examines a myriad of social and political injustices that women have been forced to endure.
