About this show

A "fascinating young physical theatre company with a bright future" (Philadelphia Weekly), Tribe of Fools brings its signature, highly stylized physical dramatics to the Annenberg Center with its 2011 Philly Fringe success, Heavy Metal Dance Fag. The full-length piece chronicles a tough, blue collar, South Philly dockworker with a secret passion for tap-dancing…to 1980s hair metal. An outrageous comedy about identity, repression and the complications of both love and dancing in South Philly, Heavy Metal Dance Fag is Billy Elliot meets Good Will Hunting meets Jersey Shore--a "raw-talking, blood pumping, street smart and altogether charming piece" (Philadelphia Inquirer).
