This image of Bethany Formica is from a while back, but I recently got a chance to see her rehearsal process in a strangely wonderful and voyeuristic fishbowl-like experience in an empty storefront in a mall.

Dance In Public Places is happening at The Gallery at Market East throughout the month of February – a wide range of dance companies are participating, sharing their rehearsal process with the public through this new initiative. Check out the schedule, or just poke your nose in anytime you’re walking by 9th and Market!

The  space is directly across from the Mural Arts Program’s How Philly Moves studio so make sure you stop by and check out the mural team at work while you’re there. They’re moving right along, and the final community paint day there is Saturday March 12! [ details ]
