THE SPIEL UHR series, Group Motion’s renowned Presenting Series features new work by Group Motion Company in conjunction with other local, but also national and international artists.
“Spiel Uhr provides a platform for local dancers to showcase new works,” said Artistic Director Manfred Fischbeck. “It is important because it highlights many Philadelphia choreographers, along with international guest artists.”
Spiel Uhr was formed out of the collaborative vision of Group Motion. As the company dancers are a vital part of the choreographic process; Spiel Uhr allows them the artistic freedom to evolve as individual choreographers. Spiel Uhr was created as a result of this idea. Spiel Uhr was established in 1988 as a platform to present new work by emerging and established local and out of town artists in addition to Group Motion Company members. Currently, the Spiel Uhr series is presented biannually (typically in October and February) and has become one of the most anticipated programs of our Philadelphia performance season.
