Outside The (Black) Box

Via Swim Pony Performing Arts

Goal

To weave the arts into the community by presenting revamped versions of plays in non-traditional spaces, including Eastern State Penitentiary and the Land Conservancy of Elkins Park

Summary: To weave the arts into the community, Swim Pony Performing Arts will present original, contemporary plays in nontraditional spaces, including Eastern State Penitentiary and the Academy of Natural Sciences. The yearlong series will produce two new versions of popular works from the company’s repertoire – The Ballad of Joe Hill and The Giant Squid – and also feature the premiere of a gothic love story. Swim Pony Performing Arts will create new partnerships beyond those traditionally involved in the city’s theater community as a way of attracting younger, more adventurous art-seeking audiences.
