Here They Stood
Here They Stood: a site-specific spoken word opera
Creator Marc Bamuthi Joseph
Note that these performances take place at the H.J. Patterson Hall, which is not located in The Clarice.
The culmination of award-winning poet, playwright, dancer, performer, and social activist Marc Bamuthi Joseph’s residency at the School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies.
A site-specific performance incorporating spoken word, movement, and live music drawing on material from Joseph’s upcoming, “We Shall Not Be Moved: the Hip-H'opera Project,” commissioned by Opera Philadelphia and Art Sanctuary. The work centers on the MOVE Organization in Philadelphia and investigates the state of education in today’s society.
