THE OLD CITY ARTS HISTORY PROJECT

“No Man’s Land”  Site Specific performance in Old City 1979

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.
