The Quiet Circus

The Quiet Circus took place every week for 15 months at the Washington Avenue Pier along the Delaware river in South Philadelphia. Dancing and contemplation happened in different ways through three overlapping programs that invited audiences to return again and again to observe and participate and create. Weekly scores evolved through the participation of newcomers. The videos below provide overviews of the programs. The project gave birth to The Quiet Circus blog: a conversation about art as experience and as a form of thinking predicated on the agency of those who touch it.
