Putty Dance Project
Automatic Arts (formerly SmokeyScout Productions) creates and presents new and original performing arts. Their Nice and Fresh performing arts showcase features new theater, dance, circus arts, and everything in-between by Philadelphia-based and beyond companies and artists—and with artistic director Josh McIlvain writing and directing one new theater creation per show. Since 2008, the company has produced more than 10 major works both in Philadelphia and New York City, from evenings of absurdist comedies to the highly acclaimed one-man play SLIDESHOW, a fictional family saga around found slides, to a trio of one acts around the theme of American Wisdom.
