THE OLD CITY ARTS HISTORY PROJECT

Dancer/choreographer Jac Carley in Jeff Cain’s “Living  Room at The Bottom of the Lake” at ETAGE 1977

PDP has received a Discovery Grant from The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage to research the legacy and history of artists and their activities, who were living and working in Old City circa 1975-1985. This discovery process grows out of PDP’s Local Dance History Project (2010)- which pursued an understanding of the roots of contemporary dance in Philadelphia. A significant number of dance artists were at the core of founding and/or creating and presenting work through Old City Arts during that era. Critical to understanding this evolution is the interplay with other artists in other disciplines particularly music, theater or performance art and the visual arts.  By exchanging this information and ideas about this history, artists and audiences may come to appreciate the depth of work being created today, not only in terms of style and interdisciplinary interaction, but also the social and urban nexus with which art connects.
The Discovery process activities will entail identifying the artists, neighbors, audiences and others who shared in the experience of Old City as an organic arts phenomenon.  We will be working with scholars, artists and community partners as advisors and participants in research process.
A CALL for information, materials or personal stories for this history project, please contact PDP.

“technically impressive “ “cheeky” “effortless and buoyant” 
a call and response discourse” “supernatural transformation”
 
“The artists of Danube/Schuykill demonstrated how dance can
become the embodiment of any political zeitgeist while highlighting
that it is in exchange where dance becomes most meaningful. I have
been reminded that art is dialogue, and that movement-something
that has bound humanity together for thousands of years-can
transgress any boundary and find new meaning and significance within any agenda”    
Courtney Colon, The Dance Journal
