Spiel Uhr was established by Brigitta Herrmann in collaboration with Djuna Wojton in 1983 as ‘Philadelphia’s Showcase for New Dimensions & Expressions in Performance.’ Works by emerging and established artists, based locally and from out of town, were presented who engaged with Dance, Music, Mime, Visual Arts, Poetry, Dance Theater, & Interdisciplinary Performance Art.

Since 1989, Group Motion’s renowned THE SPIEL UHR SERIES has featured new dance and performance works by Group Motion in conjunction with other local, national, and international artists. It is curated by Artistic Co-Director and Executive Director Manfred Fischbeck.
