Planting the seeds for cross-pollination, SPRING TRILOGY is a three-part experiment of spontaneous art making, cross-disciplinary risk-taking, and new collaborations, blossoming in twelve performances over three nights.
Part of Thirdbird’s ongoing BLIND DATE series, where musicians and dancers are matched with someone they have never performed with and challenged to: “make a plan, or plan not to”, SPRING TRILOGY is a way of exploring the diverse and multifaceted community of sound and movement makers in Philadelphia today.
In a field where it is easy to fall into circles, habits, and routines, the chance to reframe perspective can be a path to artistic growth. These artists will try something new. And they will try it for the first time in front of you. Behind each movement and reverberation is the potential for something once-in-a-lifetime amazing, with disaster an equal possibility, to be experienced by all – never again repeated.
Thirdbird is the not-entirely-new-but-newly-named wing of the shared endeavors of Anna Drozdowski (proprietor of Ladybird) and Dustin Hurt (founder of Bowerbird). It’s our way of sharing dance, music, and things between with one another and with you. A field guide to curiosities and bits of culture matter, an almanac of small pieces loosely joined. First hatched for the Blindspot Festival, thirdbird is a thing we are building – in good company - and slowly by design.
