Philadelphia Fringe Festival
September 2-17, 2011
"...breathtakingly dangerous and hauntingly beautiful." Debra Miller, STAGE Magazine 9/2/2011
At this year's Philly Fringe festival, JUNK goes underground... literally, to the sub-basement at 444 Lofts, 444 North 4th Street, Philadelphia. Sander's latest site-specific creation will take place deep in the bowels of this trendy warehouse turned loft in Northern Liberties. Below Philadelphia’s natural water table is a long unoccupied sub-basement chamber which Sanders, famous for turning unlikely spaces into site-specific challenging alternative venues, is turning into a staging ground for Dancing Dead.

This year Sanders goes underground, expect: a Tractor, Bodies, Grass, Dirt, Digging, Stone, Grit, Ash, John Denver, Darkness, Candlelight, Dancing… JUNK's latest venue rests beneath Philadelphia's natural water table and is a long unoccupied, grungy sub-basement chamber, which Sanders describes as "some sort of bizarre factory ballroom". JUNK , well-known for turning unlikely spaces into site-specific challenging alternative venues is turning the murky chamber at 444 into a staging ground for "Dancing Dead."
