Pilobolus photo with play symbol, Watch our 19/20 season video! Our 19/20 season is filled with preeminent artists performing 19 world, U.S. and local premieres, seven performing in Philadelphia for the very first time. We encourage you to explore our remarkable, thought-provoking programs across dance, music and theatre, all seeking to spark conversations, provide transformative artistic experiences and connect Penn and the Philadelphia community. We continue our commitment to commissioning new works and fostering young, up-and-coming artists alongside world-renowned luminaries you know and love. This powerful convergence highlights new ideas while amplifying the contributions of some of the most influential artists of the last century.

With our partner NextMove Dance, we offer a special retrospective to celebrate and further our dance legacy through a blockbuster series of audience favorites, thoughtful tributes and debut performances. As the presenter that first introduced Philip Glass to Philadelphia, our three-week #GLASSFEST honors his legacy in a range of performances, including one featuring the groundbreaking composer himself. Grammy® and Latin Grammy® award-winning vocalist Lila Downs serves as our 19/20 season Artist-in-Residence, expanding our The Philadelphians: Migrations That Made Our City series. This year, we shine a spotlight on Mexican Americans, one of Philadelphia’s largest current immigrant groups, and how this population has reshaped and contributed to our great city.
