The late, modern dance choreographer Trisha Brown's "Foray Forêt" will be performed on the grounds of the historic Mount Pleasant in East Fairmount Park. The mansion was built in 1761 and overlooks the Schuylkill River.

"Raft Piece" will be performed floating on the reservoir at the Discovery Center in East Fairmount Park, which opened September 2018, and "Roof Piece" will be performed on rooftops overlooking the Parkway.

The series, titled "In Motion, In Place: Trisha Brown Dance Company in Fairmount Park," is presented by Fairmount Park Conservancy, with the support of a grant from the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage and with the cooperation of Philadelphia Parks & Recreation.
