Philadelphia Dance Projects opens its 2014 season with "Then," a world premiere by New York choreographer Susan Rethorst (above), produced and performed by Group Motion, whose artistic director is Dance Adjunct Associate Professor Manfred Fischbeck.

"Then" reflects on the unique movement potential of the individual and embraces life’s daily routines. In Rethorst’s words from her essay Dailiness, the work is about “finding each moment, holding the moment until it is perceived, keeping the accumulation of moments until something is happening, something starts to kick in — the dance begins to squeak a little interest at you.”

The piece is the culmination of Susan Rethorst: Moving in Philadelphia, Rethorst’s yearlong residency in the city that included open workshops, special events and new works meant to bring the scope of her artistry to the Philadelphia community.
