Philadelphia’s Bowerbird Profiled Ahead of Move to New Facility


Several days before Christmas, the brain trust of Bowerbird — the Philadelphia nonprofit responsible for booking and presenting avant-garde music, dance, and related live art forms — sat in the pews of the University Lutheran Church at 36th and Chestnut, playing bingo and drinking craft beer. It’s their new home: Bowerbird boss Dustin Hurt and friends were, in fact, celebrating the nonprofit’s new office and its first-ever home performance space for live showcases.
