ABOUT THE FUNDRAISER
Join the artists of Svaha Theatre Collective for their first fundraiser! Inspired by the work of Sarah Kane’s iconic In-Yer-Face theater, Svaha will be hosting An Evening of Sounds From The Underground. Inspired by themes of our next show, PHAEDRA’S LOVE, Kane’s brutal exploration of the nature of love and family, of judgement, justice and truth - this evening will feature the bold voices of some of Philly’s incredible artists. Groove to the tunes of political resistance and recreational drugs, snape to the poetic stylings of social justice, grab a city wide and a raffle ticket to take home some original artwork, jewelry, and hand-crafted beer - all in the support of Svaha Theatre Collective.
