June 17, 2017 6:00-9:00PM Brian Sanders' JUNK and Unidos da Filadelfia at University City Summer Series

On Saturday, June 17th we are welcoming Brian Sanders' JUNK to the 40th Street Summer Series. Sanders’ JUNK is known for their ingenious use of found objects and clever inventions that bridge the gap between dance and physical theater. Sanders’ choreography blends traditional dance theater with an inventiveness and physicality that gives reason for critics to hail JUNK as “Philly’s most imaginative perpetrator of dare-devilish physical theater” and declare Sanders as “the city’s most exciting choreographer.” JUNK maintains its home season in Philadelphia, PA as a headliner for the FringeArts Festival, where the company’s inventive performances have sold out year after year.

Opening the show will be Unidos da Filadelfia Samba School, a group performing earth-shaking Brazilian percussion. Modeled after the neighborhood drumming groups of Rio and Salvador, Unidos da Filadelfia brings the joy and excitement of Carnaval to every performance. Come, celebrate, and DANCE with Unidos!

This is the 13th Anniversary of the 40th Street Summer Series. Stop by beginning at 5 pm for free scoops of ice cream from Ben & Jerry's, free samples of healthy snacks from honeygrow, free cold brew coffee from Saxbys, and free bicycle and helmet safety checks from Keswick Cycle University City.

Bring a chair or blanket to sit on; free and open to the public

40th and Walnut
