SoMoS is a performance spectacle bridging nature and the urban landscape, in the North Philadelphia barrio. bringing  together seven years of branch practice research. 

SoMoS will create a meditative nature carnival out of a concrete parking lot, with performance spaces and multi-media displays for winter, spring, summer and fall. Fifteen dancers will be  spread out throughout the performing areas in numerous combinations, including core dancers and co-choreographers Olive Prince, Jumatatu Poe, Marion Ramírez, Beau Hancock, and Jung Woong Kim.

SoMoS is a large scale event, with three geodesic tents transformed into performance spaces. Seasonal video- and audio-scapes are projected on and about dancers performing the hypnotic, branch dances—an intimate dance that follows the gravity and shifting balance of nature. Large shadows of the dancers are projected against the walls of the tents. Visible from the outside, these artful shadows create their own performance experience and yet another viewpoint for audiences. The fourth performance space will be the outdoors, with giant video projections of nature in extreme close-up upon the walls of adjoining buildings.

Friday Oct 12, 2012.  Two performances at 7:15 and 9PM in the  parking lot on 5th and Huntingdon Streets, Philadelphia. 19133  Presented by Taller Puertorriqueño’s Café Under the Stars.
