New York City based dance advocacy organization Pentacle will bring the work of five female-led companies to Philadelphia’s renowned home for dance, the Performance Garage. For two nights, modern and contemporary dance from both coasts convene to tell a diverse array of stories: Go on a journey to mythical lands, confront barriers and isolation in poetic duets, and be enthralled by aerial spectacle of light, movement, and projection. Experience the dimensions of the human condition in thought-provoking and expertly crafted dance works by Ariel Rivka Dance, Freespace Dance, MILKLEAF, The Moving Architects, and Sonia Plumb Dance Company. These companies are part of Pentacle’s Administrative Support Program, which provides direct administrative services and performance opportunities for artists.
