Great Times at the Magic Gardens

The Playing Mantis had the pleasure of performing last Saturday night at Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens.  We were joined by Liana, who introduced us to this great venue as well as performing with us throughout the evening.

Really, the impressiveness of this space cannot be overstated.  Every visible surface is covered in a variety of mosaics comprised in many cases of mixed mediums.  Combinations of tiles, mirrors, bottles, pottery, and other sculptures combine to produce an absolutely overwhelming visual experience.  A number of pathways and small alcoves wind through the outdoor portion of the venue allowing visitors to stop and examine the intricate artwork, or simply wander and explore.  You can visit their website and find pictures of some of the various art installations at www.philadelphiasmagicgardens.org.

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words… We’re not sure how that translates into video, but check out this footage of SnapDragon taken by an audience member in our second set.

You can get an idea of what an amazing venue this is for fire dancing around a minute into the video when the camera pans to the mirrors lining the walls.

We’re hoping to perform there again soon, so stay tuned!  You won’t want to miss it.
