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.

By Kinan Faham

the Silent Camera is Kinan Faham's photography moniker. Kinan is a software guy with interests in visual and sonic arts. Through photography and video, he captures the extraordinary in the ordinary. Kinan was born in the oldest continually inhabited city in the world and moved to the states for graduate school. For him, art is a hobby that also forms an essential, inseparable part of his being.. The inspiration for the Silent Camera name came from contemporary composers Arvo Part and John Luther Adams whose compositions defy complex structures in favor of meditative voices and can be linked to space/visual stimuli.
