Guests on The Deck at the Moshulu are in for a new treat while dancing under the stars this summer.
Open for its second season, The Deck offers live DJs a bar and special events. But beginning on June 16, an aerialist from the Philadelphia School of Circus Arts, dressed as a mermaid, will give free, 20-minute performances between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m. while suspended from the ship's yards.
Rae Mae, an instructor at PSCA, will be the main aerialist performing on the lyra and on silks each Saturday night. Other performances for guests attending The Deck will include circus arts and fire spinning.
Located on the Delaware River, the Moshulu offers views of the Philadelphia skyline, Penn’s Landing and Benjamin Franklin Bridge, making it an ideal setting to catch a performance on a cool, summer night.
Check out photos below from a recent preview performance of what you’re likely to see each Saturday night.

Performances will be held every Saturday night and are free to everyone with admission to The Deck.
