Philadelphia choreographer Nichole Canuso presents a solo performance, originally Center-funded, that uses personal reminiscences and universal yearnings to explore the relationship between memory and self. Combining music, movement, and personal narratives, and using Frédéric Chopin’s 24 Preludes to frame the piece into segments, the evening-length work overlaps murky memories of the past with the ephemerality of the present in an attempt to reveal larger questions about what we keep and what we toss aside. Funded by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, Midway Avenue originally premiered in May 2014 at FringeArts.

August 27, 28, and 29 performances start at 8:30 p.m. The Saturday, August 30 performance starts at 4 p.m.
