Anne-Marie Mulgrew and Dancers Company Present's "The Umbrella Dance"
Fri Jun 11 2021 at 05:00 pm
Cherry Street Pier | Philadelphia, PA
The Umbrella Dance is a site-specific performance tailored to the natural beauty and architecture of a specific location. It features 6-10 dancers in white carrying white umbrellas accompanied by roaming documenters. This live installation travels slowly and silently through an area. The work is built on a walking score accented by a series of movement tableaus, intimate gestures, and choreographed phrases.
The Umbrella Dance has appeared to critical acclaim at 21 of the City’s most treasured landmarks including DanceBOOM, Wilma Theater, Schuylkill River Banks, The Barnes Museum.
Enjoy this special pop-up performance on June 11 as it moves from Cherry Street Pier to Race Street Pier.
