Nichole Canuso Dance Company To Present SNEAKERS

Nichole Canuso Dance Company will present Sneakers from September 6 - 10, 2019 at Theatre Exile in Philadelphia, PA.

When someone departs your life they also enter it in a new way. Sneakers is about that shift. Created and performed by Nichole Canuso (Wandering Alice, TAKES, The Garden, Pandæmonium) in collaboration with director Suli Holum and sound designer Michael Kiley, Sneakers is an elegy for what has gone, and a tender tumble through what remains. Sneakers also examines the architecture of memory, and the systems we construct to house the past, the present, the false, the borrowed and the buried.

The last time Canuso, Holum and Kiley collaborated in these same roles, was the Fringe Festival hit Wandering Alice (2008). These three dear friends and collaborators have hovered in one another's orbit over the years, collaborating in different constellations of artists. They return as a trio to create this deeply personal work about grief and consolation, and the architecture of memory.

Sneakers will be performed at Theatre Exile in south Philadelphia Friday, September 6th through Tuesday, September 10th, showing times are as followed: Friday, 6pm; Saturday 7pm; Sunday, 3pm; Monday, 8pm* (*followed by a late-night performance cabaret); Tuesday, 8pm. Theatre Exile is located at 1340 S. 13th St., Philadelphia, PA 19147. Box office: 215-413-1318. For tickets visit

*Monday evening's performance will be followed by a late-night cabaret featuring Martha Graham Cracker, Eliza Hardy Jones, Pax Ressler, Emmanuel Delpech and many more. Drinks and snacks will be available throughout the evening.
