See Philadelphia in a whole new way! Without the constraints of a theatrical performance structure, this hybrid performance art tour permits audience members freedom of movement throughout the city. Starting at a Center City Philadelphia mystery location, audiences will be guided through a journey leaving artistic traces of tape as hints along the way. Experience morsels of artistry from an award-winning quartet of performers who combine electronic soundscapes, improvised dance, and graphics to create a dynamic performance that undulates through the City of Brotherly Love.

In its American premiere, Asphalt Piloten’s Tape Riot is a performance that pushes against traditional boundaries by infiltrating urban public spaces to create a totally unexpected and unique experience.
