Name three things that come to mind when you think of Delaware County in September. If you didn’t immediately think comedy, dance, or theater, you either just moved here or have yet to witness the sheer output of talent contributed to the Philadelphia Fringe Festival by Delco artists.
Five dance shows feature Delaware County troupes or residents, including Fringe regulars Music & Motion Dance Productions — now rebranded as MM2, a modern dance company from Drexel Hill. Led by Artistic Director Steven Weisz, this 10-year old group provides dance training and performance opportunities for college-age dancers.
This year, MM2 will present “Emergence,” whose theme will focus on complex patterns that can arise from individual behaviors—picture birds taking wing in flight, or dancers gliding across a stage. Either way, expect that Weisz’ troupe will continue to delight fringe audiences with the grace of poise of his company.
