JUNK is known for their ingenious use of found objects and clever inventions that bridge the gap between dance and physical theater. The company strives to produce work that is both artistic and accessible while maintaining a ceaseless desire to try new things. The troupe’s shows are an exhilarating feast of exciting physicality and creativity, elegantly served up with beauty and wit. Dance Magazine cites Sanders' work as “accessible, technically flawless, and thrilling comic dance turns.”
Each year JUNK creates a new site-specific performance work for the annual Fringe Festival in Philadelphia, PA. The troupe is known for presenting off-the-wall, dare-devil choreography in challenging and unusual venues. Recent sites include an underground swimming pool, an abandoned power station and a National Guard Armory. Hits from the Fringe includes an array of works showing JUNK’s accessible and thrilling style, including the Fringe hit Patio Plastico described by The Philadelphia Inquirer as “a sublimely goofy piece that at times slid into just plain sublime.” A featured work on the program is Dancing Dead which originally took place in one of the deepest subbasements in Philadelphia. Stage Magazine raves, "Never has there been as memorable a gravedigger theme since Shakespeare’s HAMLET; this is artistry that touches the soul." “Dancing Dead is at once breathtakingly dangerous and hauntingly beautiful.”
