A Sense of Burning will be the first of three exhibits MAAG will mount at The Philadelphia Theatre Company this year, in conjunction with their production of A Small Fire. Witness what over 20 artists created when they were asked: What burns in you or haunts you? Is it passion, pain, anger, joy, determination, loss? Is it a tingle or a searing, undeniable quest to continue to live fully while overcoming limitations? Our senses rule much of our lives and drive us to make decisions. How we respond to our senses guides our reactions. How we express our longings and our need to be understood in the world.
We invite you to take part in the Opening Reception October 25, 2019, at 7 PM. The show will be on display in the upstairs gallery space at The Suzanne Roberts Theatre from October 18 – November 10, 2019.
Adam Bock’s meticulously crafted A Small Fire follows Emily Bridges, a woman used to running all the things – from her construction business to her family – until she suddenly and mysteriously starts losing her physical senses. As her world changes, her relationships shift in poignant and revelatory ways.
The Suzanne Roberts Theatre is located at 480 S Broad St, Philadelphia, PA 19146.
