Anne-Marie Mulgrew and Dancers Company Present’s “The Umbrella Dance”

June 11
Location: Cherry Street Pier and Race Street Pier
Time: 5 pm

Known for its highly imaginative dance theater works and collaborative projects, Anne-Marie Mulgrew and Dancers Company (AMM & DCO) will perform a reimagined version of its signature traveling dance video installation, The Umbrella Dance, at Cherry Street Pier and Race Street Pier on June 11.

The Umbrella Dance is a site-specific performance tailored to the natural beauty and architecture of a specific location. It features 6-10 dancers in white carrying white umbrellas accompanied by roaming documenters. This live installation travels slowly and silently through an area. The work is built on a walking score accented by a series of movement tableaus, intimate gestures, and choreographed phrases. 

The Umbrella Dance has appeared to critical acclaim at 21 of the City’s most treasured landmarks including DanceBOOM, Wilma Theater, Schuylkill River Banks, The Barnes Museum.

Enjoy this special pop-up performance on June 11 as it moves from Cherry Street Pier to Race Street Pier.
