Situated in the northernmost part of Wissahickon Valley Park, the beautiful AndorraNatural Area one of “the last wild places of Fairmount Park”. This lightly trafficked area of concentric paths is a sanctuary for birds and other wildlife including white tail deer and red fox. Audiences are advised to follow directions and come prepared for a performance adventure that includes a semi-vigorous 15- to 20-minute uphill hike on foot to the performance site. Wear comfortable walking shoes and give yourself plenty of time to get lost as you find the performers along the Central Loop. The paths will be marked with white flour to assist audiences in finding the performers. Wear sunscreen and insect repellent. Wear a hat and sunglasses. Bring water. Check the weather forecast before you venture out and dress appropriately.
Performances take place rain or shine. Cancellations only in extreme weather. Check the Branch Dances Blog for last minute updates and suggestions.
