TrailOff Artist Talks: Eppchez !

October 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

TrailOff is an immersive augmented reality audio performance presenting ten original audio narratives, each connected to paths within the Philadelphia region’s expansive Circuit Trails network. Accessed via a mobile app, listeners will hear original dramas while walking each route. Written by local authors in collaboration with Swim Pony and the Pennsylvania Environmental Council (PEC), these stories center experiences that connect with communities traditionally underserved by environmental programming.

As part of the 2020 Fringe Festival, FringeArts hosts a series of talks with the local authors featured in TrailOff. On Friday, October 2nd, Eppchez! speaks with Bob Skiba (Curator of the John J. Wilcox Jr. Archives at the William Way LGBT Community Center) about queer history in Philadelphia, taking up some of the themes of Eppchez!’s story situated on the Delaware River Trail South. Moderated by FringeArts Artistic Producer Zach Blackwood.
