“We find an exciting partner in Josh McIlvain and SmokeyScout Productions’ commitment to curating a cross section of Philly’s performing arts community. Circus is often overlooked as a distinct art form, and we are looking forward to presenting work alongside the dancers, movers, playwrights and art-makers that populate this series.” –Marc Miller, managing director of the Philadelphia School of Circus Arts

“I’m interested in the many artistic forms that constitute performance and yet exist separately: theater versus dance versus multimedia and all the subgroups within artistic disciplines, which tend to isolate themselves from each other. I like putting these different forms side-by-side in one show. For audiences, it’s a snapshot of the directions various artists and disciplines are stretching themselves—and for me, it’s fun to see all this wildly different work in one place.”—Josh McIlvain, series curator and contributor, director of SmokeyScout Productions
