While I’m admittedly skipping Oppenheimer, I know I'll eventually catch Barbie—but I’m waiting for the hype to fizzle a little before I make my way to a weekday matinee sometime soon. (I hope it's as camp as one can imagine. I've been steering clear of opinions and spoilers.) While Barbenheimer is occupying our conversations and our imaginations, there’s plenty more to discover much closer to home.
Contributor Melissa Strong tells us about Flowing Forms and has written an excellent profile of the multi-skilled ‘dance MVP’ Keila Pérez-Vega. Eileen Fisher gives us a look into a unique performance at the PMA, and Stephen Silver rounds up the movie screenings for August.
We’ve also got the weekly roundup, which features the BlackStar Film Festival, The Elephants and the Grass, and a pair of familiar performances from Upper Darby Performing Arts Center and People’s Light.
