To illuminate the unique concept of What You Will, BRT presents the Bridges Informance Series. Part-performance, part-discussion, each evening will challenge and inspire audiences' ideas of theatre today.
In an evening of spectacular dance by What You Will collaborator and acclaimed choreographer of Broadway's The Color Purple, Donald Byrd's Spectrum Dance Theatre will perform selections from their repertory on the BRT stage. Under Byrd's artistic leadership since 2002, Spectrum Dance Theatre has garnered national praise for its world-class dancers and some of the most avant-garde works in contemporary dance today.
The Bridges Informance Series has been supported by a grant from the Marketing Innovation Program, a program of the Philadelphia Center for Arts and Heritage, funded by The Pew Charitable Trusts, and administered by The University of the Arts, Philadelphia
