I love, love graveyards. So much history and so many stories! Today Angels and Accordions, a FREE site-specific, live music and dance performance, will be guiding audience members through the Greenwood Cemetery’s lush hills and through its forest of sculptures and monuments. With 30 dancers choreographed by Martha Bowers of Dance Theatre Etcetera, original music by Klucevsek and Goldberg played live by a band or accordions and singers, and a visual installation in the Catacombs designed by photographer Alexander Heilner, this will be a trip to the graveyard not to miss! (Plus some tombs will be open to explore.) If it rains Saturday, they will reschedule for Sunday Oct. 11th.

Sunday, 'œIn a Dream,' will be screening at Uniondocs. 'œIn a Dream' is a documentary about a world-renowned artist Isaiah Zagar and the 50,000-square feet of mosaics he creates in South Philadelphia for his wife Julia. Promoted as 'œa fascinating portrait of love and betrayal, artistic invention, and the enduring power of family bonds,' the film has won plenty of awards and features the music of The Books, Explosions in the Sky, Efterklang, and Kelli Scarr. If you like nervous breakdowns, cheating, volunteerism, bohemian life, rehab clinics, millions of tiny pieces of tile and mirror, this will be the film for you.
