2017 PDP  WOLF-IN-SKINS Dance/Opera Creative Residency with choreographer CHRISTOPHER WILLIAMS and composer GREGORY SPEARS

Operatic elements tell the story while dance explores the dreaminess of the mythology…it’s a visual feast.”  - Merilyn Jackson, Philadelphia Inquirer
 
If you were one of the lucky audience to see the Philadelphia Dance Projects’ sold out performances of Wolf-In-Skins, Act 1 in 2013 you know how exciting this work is! 
A PDP special residency will begin in 2017 and culminate with a script in hand presentation in the Fall when some of those marvelous singers, wolves and hounds, along with new puppets will return.

 

PDP has received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts for a creative residency with choreographer, Christopher Williams and composer Gregory Spears to work towards finishing this wonderful dance opera.  
 
“Dance and opera certainly have been blended over the centuries, but not often with the sort of intensive interaction demanded by [choreographer] Williams and composer Gregory Spears, both seemingly fearless about striking out in new direction.” David Patrick Stearns, Philadelphia Inquirer
 
Please contribute to developing Wolf-In-Skins, Act 2.  Help us match the NEA grant. 

 

WOLF-IN SKINS Residency & Presentation funding goal is $20,000.
$500 - 2 tickets to showing and reception
$100-$499 - 2 tickets to showing
No contribution is too small…..All donors will be acknowledged in the printed program
 
While we are focusing our 2016 Annual Appeal on the
Wolf in Skins Artist Residency, PDP continues to provide unique Projects in presentation, professional development and enriched learning for students. 
We welcome your participation in all of Philadelphia Dance Projects.
 
See you in 2017, as we look to art to assuage these trying times, and inspirit our courage.
 
Thank you. Terry Fox, PDP Director
