Private Citizens in Public Perfomances at Philly Live Arts Festival
Inspired by Edinburgh’s renowned Fringe Festival, Philadelphia’s version took root in 1997. Over the next several weeks, galleries, bars, and public plazas will be among the ordinary spaces turned into venues for experimental performing arts. Some people are also transforming - stepping away from their day jobs and out of their comfort zones.
WRTI’s Susan Lewis takes a broad look at the festival and a close up on how one Live Arts show is turning ordinary people into dancers.
