In celebration of the Water Works’ 200th anniversary, Mendelssohn Club joins forces with the Leah Stein Dance Company and composer Byron Au Yong to present the world premiere of TURBINE, an immersive work for singers, dancers, and instruments, featuring choreography and music shaped in response to the site’s architecture and landscape. Join us as we by explore the Fairmount Water Works and Schuylkill watershed through movement and sound.
NOTE: The world premiere of TURBINE was originally scheduled in May but due to site-specific circumstances which were beyond the control of all involved parties, it was rescheduled for June 27 & 28.
