And Still they Rose: The Legacy of Black Philadelphians in Ballet

And Still they Rose: The Legacy of Black Philadelphians in Ballet

The history of Black Philadelphians in classical ballet dates back to the early 1930’s. In this in-depth panel discussion, dance icons Joan Myers Brown of Philadanco and Delores Browne of The New York Negro Ballet recount the early years as dancers. From training with trailblazers like Sydney King and Marion Cuyjet, to studying with World renown English choreographer Anthony Tudor, their stories are a master class on ballet, blackness, and how they intersect here in Philadelphia. Accompanying this illuminating talk will be a visual exhibit of portraiture by Eva Mueller.

AMERICAN HAM-STAND: DRAG CABARET

AMERICAN HAM-STAND: DRAG CABARET

The Haus of Ham is a comedy collective of Philadelphia’s most ridiculous performers: Lili St. Queer, Eric Jaffe, and Mistor Fahrenheit. Mixing comedy, drag, and music with tasteful flatulence, the Hams put on gender-bending & genre-defying show. Established in 2014, they are best known for their drag parody of the cult classic movie Mean Girls, and their original single Ret 2 Go (available on iTunes). Their jokes are hammy – their tucks are meaty — and their faces are fully-cooked and glazed to perfection!
