PDP at 20 years…

This iconic photo of Dancer/Choreographer, Rennie Harris was taken by Photographer, Bob Emmott at a photo shoot for Philadelphia Dance Projects.  In PDP’s first full season as an independent presenter we commissioned Harris and Dance/Music Artist Grisha Coleman to collaborate on a new work made possible in part with support from the MAP Fund.   The suite of dances and music  “Every Good Boy Does Fine” premiered at the Painted Bride  and at the Aaron Davis Hall in NYC in May of 1997.   This was Puremovement’s first full evening work and sections from the collaboration toured in RHPM for several years throughout the world.
That spring 1997 also included workshops by Deborah Hay and Ronald K Brown.
PDP with Arranged Introductions facilitated workshops with Leah Stein for young people of  Southwest Philly who performed with her at Bartram Gardens that year.
PDP, also, participated in the Philadelphia Festival of World Cinema presenting a program by filmmaker/dancer Jo Andres.
Philadelphia Dance Projects was off to an auspicious start.
Throughout 2017 we will highlight some of this history, the projects and the artists…It’s an impressive and impactful history.
