Graffito Works at Shofuso Japanese House and Garden

Steven Weisz, founder of PhiladelphiaDANCE.org, has brought numerous dance programs to the greater Philadelphia region.

His latest brainchild, Graffito Works (translated as “little scribbles” of movement), presented at Shofuso Japanese House and Garden.

Graffito Works is a unique platform for dancers and performing artists to create site-specific work and to make it readily accessible to the public. Work is created in non-traditional spaces, challenging artists to push the boundaries of their craft, while making their work relevant and accessible to a wider audience.

The performance featured improvisational dance with movement spontaneously created and inspired by the surrounding environment.
