2 Incredible 2 Dreamz at SPACE 1026

INCREDIBLE DREAMZ returns to the Philly Fringe festival with their latest offering, 2 INCREDIBLE 2 DREAMZ. Deeply personal and profoundly experimental, INCREDIBLE DREAMZ features hypermodern dance, poststructural comedy, and physical theater to create a delicate banana peel ballet. A frothy pudding of frothy relationships, frothy emotional push-ups and frothy vulnerability so disorienting and engrossing that you won’t understand art anymore.

INCREDIBLE DREAMZ is a comedy collective featuring The Incredible Shrinking Matt & Jacquie (Matthew Schmid and Jacquie Baker) and The New Dreamz (Rose Luardo and Andrew Jeffrey Wright). After years of working in the Philadelphia music, art, and comedy scene, these four merged to create a surreal, experimental comedy experience for the 2016 Fringe Festival which DC Metro Theater Arts hailed as “an absurd offering of silly, surreal, funny shtick with a side of bologna roll.”

Destroy Content Desert – Long Live Content Desert

Content Desert is a post-internet object, a journey through graphic refuse amassed and extruded over several stylized chapters. The 450-plus pages of Content Desert anachronously proceed from it’s obnoxious tag line of “1,000,0000 years of broken graphics… load more, know less”.

Maas Building •1325 N. Randolph St • Philadelphia, PA 19122. Workshop is limited to 5 people. $60 workshop fee, $20 supply kit
