The Revivalists are a new collective of Philadelphia artists who strive to connect our own modern context with unique cultural episodes from throughout American history. Through exploration of stories, music, ritual and philosophy, the Revivalists find modern meaning in our shared past. No tradition is too sacred, no experiment too perilous. Using found text and site specific venues, The Revivalists look to find common meaning in our history and share in that experience with our audiences. Audiences are invited to take part in the world we bring to life. True Revivalists encourage all to engage - to live and breathe the theatrical event - and move forward with the ideas presented to them. We challenge ourselves and our audiences to re-engage with the beliefs and principles on which our country was founded and thrived. The Revivalists look to build community through the synthesis of art and history. The event is all for your delight.
