Megan Bridge in “F(Dot)GOS (or) Friendly Dancer of the Giant Outer Space.”
Lately we’ve seen a lot of small salon-style dances – often in people’s living rooms – that take place so close to the audience that it’s difficult to tell the difference between performer and viewer. But the loft residence of dancer/choreographer Megan Bridge and composer Peter Price occupies the whole top floor of the building housing Mascher Space Co-op (of which Bridge and Price are members) on the first floor of 155 Cecil B. Moore Ave.
During the weekend, they presented three “choreographies” in the performance space across from their living room, which they had just retrofitted with nifty interior storm windows, rendering the space (and concept) – which they call “fidget” – less frigid. The couple hosted Washington-based dancer/choreographer Kelly Bond and dancers Lillian Cho and Melissa Krodman in their performance work Elephant, seen at the 2010 Philly Fringe festival.
