Unlike anything you’ve ever experienced, this epic 24-hour performance art concert exorcizes the social history of the United States—240 years in the making and 24 hours in the telling. It is a spectacular pop odyssey with over 24 musicians and more than 100 local performers, including burlesque performers, a choir, a marching band, knitters, and acrobats. The audience itself is essential to the performance with deeply touching, oftentimes hilarious, and immersive moments that build to a delicious illustration of our nation’s diverse and sometimes dysfunctional story, reinvigorating a distinctively American sense of possibility.
This show is a part of the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts, featuring ground-breaking artistry of local and international music, dance, and aerial magic performances and installations, May 31-Jun 10. Visit KIMMELCENTER.ORG/PIFA for the full festival line-up.
