Headlong Dance Theater

Over the years, Headlong has created over forty dances. Their recent obsessions have been with audience engagement (asking audience members to DO things and take risks); site-specificity (working outside of theatrical venues and embracing the actual physical reality of the site); and creating opportunities for shifts of consciousness and awareness (drawing attention to things that already exist, but that we forget to pay attention to).

New Paradise Laboratories

New Paradise Laboratories is an experimental performance ensemble that explores radical means of expression to bend and reshape conventional ideas of theatre. They imagine theatre as visionary experience and use a variety of creative strategies including company-devising techniques, cross-media design elements, and site-specific installation. Their pieces value sudden inspiration, paradigm shifts, and shocks to the system. New Paradise Laboratories was Philadelphia Contemporary’s fiscal sponsor before we received our 501c3 status. So, they’re like our surrogate parents.
