Bodies of Text is a series of collaborative dance performances and art exhibitions tied to the book and its interdisciplinary interpretations.   Premiering as a part of the 2011 Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts and its theme of Paris 1911, Bodies of Text is rooted in the idea of Art à la Rue and brings Art to the Street in Philadelphia’s Rive Gauche, West Philadelphia.

Philadelphia dance companies interpret seven unique books, selected from many submissions by Philadelphia Center for the Book members.  The first installment of these choreographic creations, all world premieres, will be performed on April 16th at the Community Education Center (3500 Lancaster) at 8 pm and will feature works by Idiosyncrazy Productions and Rain Ross Dance.  Tickets are available through the CEC (Box Office: 215-387-19111) and through PIFA at www.
