Did you know that PSCA has a thriving Artist-in-Residence (AiR) program? We do! Circus, theater and dance artists can apply for project-specific residencies and receive space, training, feedback and other types of support from PSCA.
Right now we have a full house, with SIX resident companies and individual artists developing work here. Let’s get to know them!
Ren Williams is developing a new dance piece, MUSE, that incorporates aerial dance. She’s been working with our talented coach Christine Morano on the aerial sections of the show, to debut in October 2016. Check out her progress at Christine’s artist showing on July 9th.
Allie Vidich is leading the charge on the creation of Beck Epoch, set to premiere on the Schuylkill River as part of Invisible River on July 15th and 16th. PSCA coaches Shannon and Christine are part of the performance. This site-specific work is going to be awesome!
Almanac circus theater is currently developing their next full length production as part of PSCA’s residency program! This new show is set to debut as part of Philly Fringe, September 8th-18th.
Tribe of Fools
Tribe of Fools Website
PSCA staff super hero Terry Brennan captains Tribe of Fools, a motley crew recently featured on the TV Show Fake Off. Terry has spent the last couple of months developing a show for the SoLow Festival, and they also have a new production for the Philadelphia Fringe Festival in the works.
FaceBook Event for Muzical Clowns
Lesley Berkowitz is developing a two-person show for the Philadelphia SoLow Festival! We were so impressed by the idea of a two-person solo show that we gave her rehearsal space.
Grounded Autonomy Tickets
A newcomer to PSCA, Sean Green and co. are working with our awesome aerial coach Rachel to develop the aerial components of their new show Grounded Autonomy, set to premiere at the Glass Factory during the Philadelphia Fringe Festival, September 9th-11th.
We’re very proud to be able to sponsor these exciting artists and to be a driving force behind making Philadelphia a center for circus as a performing art in the United States. Please support these artists with your attendance to their shows and social media attention!
