Mission Statement

 

The mission of the Impermanent Society of Philadelphia (ISOP), a group of Philadelphia-area arts practitioners and curators, is to support freely improvised live performance that focuses on experimental sound and movement.

 

We are committed to serving those in our region (and beyond) who value or may benefit from experiencing improvisatory dance and music that embraces interdisciplinary collaboration, playful interaction, rigorous practice, imaginative use of material, and innovative composition. We are also committed to refining craft; expanding appreciation for and understanding of the art of improvisation; and increasing the awareness of materiality through all sensations.

 

To this end, ISOP organizes performance and educational programming that develops a dynamic connection between artists and audience members.
