The much anticipated in-person premiere of The Philadelphia Matter – 1972/2020 is finally here!

In September 2020, celebrated choreographer, director, and writer David Gordon premiered his first new screen work in two decades with a “virtual” performance company of 30+ Philadelphia, New York, and artists in quarantine across the United States. Working remotely, they recorded video material on everything from iPhones to professional cameras. Gordon then dissected, assembled, and collaged this movement with visual scores and archival works.

We were unable to celebrate together in-person last year due to the pandemic – but we are so pleased to announce that we will finally be able to join together in our garden for a free outdoor screening of this extraordinary piece. Complimentary wine, beer, and snacks will be served.

This event is free, but donations are appreciated. Registration is not required but is also appreciated. Click View Event Website below to register.
