Rennie Harris Puremovement (RHPM) is based on the belief that hip-hop dance is a important original expression of a generation, with the unique ability to convey themes that extend beyond racial, religious and economic boundaries. RHPM deconstructs the popular perception about hip-hop by encompassing rich and diverse African-American dance traditions while simultaneously presenting the voice of a new generation.

Rennie Harris is the recipient of a Pew Fellowship in the Arts for Choreography grant and has received awards from all of the major cultural councils in Philadelphia and Pennsylvania. Harris was awarded the Bessie Award and was recognized as the Pennsylvania Artist of the Year by Governor Rendell in 2007.

Indian Ink Theatre Company returns with Kiss the Fish, Inspired by the true story of a luxury resort abandoned by humans and entirely occupied by monkeys. This production of a simple South Asian island with an array of musical instruments, puppetry, an ensemble of actors and Balinese comic masks.

In a turn of events, the island finds its fate in the hands of Sidu—who everyone agrees is a very odd fish.

 Theatre Performance

Tickets: $20 Adult & $10 Student/Youth

The creators of Darwin the Dinosaur  and the folks at Lightwire Theater (in conjunction with Corbian Visual Arts and Dance) bring their use of cutting-edge technology, moving sculpture, and dance to a theatrical experience.

Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling has helped generations of children understand one of humanity’s universal struggles. Lightwire Theater brings this classic story to the modern stage for the ugly duckling, who exemplifies resilience and heroism along the way to becoming a beautiful swan. Aesop’s fable, The Tortoise and the Hare, now more than 2,500 years old, continues to drive home the time-tested adage, “Slow and steady wins the race.”
