Pew Fellow and choreographer Kate Watson-Wallace created Store, the third installment of a trilogy of site-specific dance works performed in everyday spaces. Store was preceded by House, performed in a row home, and Car, in which the audience viewed the performance as passengers in a car. Performed inside an abandoned megastore, Store addressed concerns of how and why we buy, chronicling the "inner life of the American consumer," according to Watson-Wallace. Watson-Wallace was joined on stage by Makoto Hirano, Jaamil Kosoko, Lorin Lyle, John Luna, and Heather Murphy. Following its Philadelphia premiere, the work traveled to the Kelly Strayhorn Theater in Pittsburgh.
