Art-Reach is proud to announce the premiere of our Documentary “I Am” this September 19th at 6pm at the Prince Theater.
This premiere will include a reception, film viewing, followed by a question & answer session with the dancers and filmmaker.
The film “I Am” follows the journey of six students from St Katherine’s Special Education School and eight dancers from the Pennsylvania Ballet’s Second Company to create a fully-realized ballet piece choreographed by Jessica Kilpatrick. For ten weeks filmmaker Glenn Holsten and his crew from Freshfly Productions documented this journey, a product of Art-Reach’s ENCORE program, where people with disabilities engage with the arts in a participatory way.
The original piece was performed live at Art-Reach’s Cultural Access Awards in May 2017. This project broke the mold of how Art-Reach creates programming and is a milestone for us and the Pennsylvania Ballet’s Community Engagement Program.
Special acknowledgement to Impact100 Philadelphia for supporting the program and film.
