Brian Sanders' Junk Present My Funny Bone

May 11 - 14

 

Brian Sanders’ JUNK is known for their ingenious use of found objects and clever inventions that bridge the gap between dance and physical theater. Sanders’ choreography blends traditional dance theater with an inventiveness and physicality that gives reason for critics to hail JUNK as “Philly’s most imaginative perpetrator of dare-devilish physical theater” and declare Sanders as "the city’s most exciting choreographer."

 

JUNK’s mission as a dance-theater company is to inspire with creativity. The company strives to produce work that is both artistic and accessible while maintaining a ceaseless desire to try new things. Through original productions and community outreach JUNK seeks to serve as a catalyst for generating fresh ideas and to encourage us to see the world in a new and vital way.

 

Returning with its 2nd annual production for spring, this program tells the story of how Sanders’ got his funny bone in a 90-minute revue style show caught somewhere between Lawrence Welk and the Gong Show. Starring a troupe of 6 acrobatic dance artists, the program is a running display of the troupe’s most humorous work taking an irreverent look at life, love and the pursuit of happiness and all the humor and pain that comes with it.

 

"My Funny Bone" welcomes audiences to experience what critics have called, "exquisite beauty, slapstick humor, and gasp-inducing feats of derring-do . . . " Philadelphia Inquirer.
