Philadelphia's FringeArts Presents Tere O'Connor's BLEED, Now thru 3/29
This week, FringeArts will bring acclaimed choreographer Tere O'Connor and his eponymous contemporary dance company to Philadelphia to present BLEED (today, March 27-29), an introspective and challenging work that explores memory and identity through the ephemeral language of dance. To purchase tickets or for hotel information, call 215-413-1318 or visit fringearts.com.
Of its triumphant world premiere at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in December 2013, The New York Times called BLEED an "uncompromising investigation of choreography as a mirror of human consciousness" in which dancers, ideas and approaches are blended together to form a new choreographic language at the threshold between process and product, craft and coincidence."
The culmination of a two-year creation project, the eclectic BLEED mixes diverse movement styles as well as performers. Collapsing three of O'Connor's previous works into one, the work creates an experience that at once conveys multiplicity and singularity. "Ghosts of the other dances resonate through the new work and shape its form," says O'Connor, "but they are subterranean and exert their pressure on this new construction from the caves of memory."
FringeArts is the leading presenter of contemporary performing arts in Philadelphia. FringeArts is located within walking distance of the Liberty Bell, in a newly renovated 1903 Delaware River waterfront performance space at 140 N. Columbus Blvd, at Race Street, in Old City, Philadelphia, PA.
