Gain a fresh perspective on the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s collection.

A contemporary American dance company that brings dance where it does not belong, Monica Bill Barnes & Company has created an irreverent and devotional love letter to museums.

Deep knee bends in front of Renaissance armor? Jumping jacks with Picasso? Put your sneakers on and jog along with Monica Bill Barnes and her long-time dancing partner Anna Bass as they travel through the Philadelphia Museum of Art, performing choreographed exercises in the galleries.

Creative producing director Robert Saenz de Viteri interviewed and edited commentary by author/visual artist Maira Kalman (who selected the art along the tour). He mixes her contemplative narration live during the show with high-energy songs ranging from disco to Motown, providing an infectious soundtrack to participatory performances that transform the museum tour and create a new relationship with the galleries and art.

Note: Not for the faint of heart. Participants will engage in a brisk, 45-minute workout. Exercise attire required.

Presented in partnership with the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
