Kicking off the Bride’s new International Family Series with PAPAYA, this riveting show is a great way to introduce your young adventurers to the world of dance. Two dazzling dance duets that push the limits of physical possibilities and challenge the laws of gravity!  After seeing this extraordinary double bill from The Netherlands, one critic recommends that you had “better not try this at home.”  Here’s your chance to see why!

In my true north, the dancers display superhuman endurance as they build a roller-coaster of endless flow – twisting, turning, and climbing the walls, without ever losing contact.   No Man is an Island {VIDEO} is a balancing act like no other as one dancer climbs and shifts atop the other, without ever touching the ground…“the kind of in-your-face physicality that makes audiences of all ages crane forward in near-disbelief… Wow!”  – The Herald (UK).

Recommended for families with school age children.

PAPAYA at the Bride
A Family Performance Series
presented by PAPAYA & the Painted Bride Art Center

This all-new series takes families on an international roller-coaster ride of playful, powerful performances packed with an innovative punch.  Audience members from eight to eighty will experience the unexpected as artists from The Netherlands, Canada, and Italy bring to the stage dance movement, theater performance, and interactive multi-media works that will ignite your imagination and leave everyone cheering for more.

For this engaging new program, the always ground breaking Painted Bride Art Center partners with PAPAYA, a fresh cultural organization committed to bringing international artist of the highest caliber to Philadelphia for people of all ages to experience and enjoy together.

Introduce your young ones to a life-long fascination for live performance as they open their eyes to the world around them, learn and imagine in new ways and cross artistic boundaries.  These performances will stay with them.  “The fascinated stares and open mouths in the audience said it all.” -The Scotsman (reviewing Arch 8).
