Ninth Planet + Brandi Burgess

Ninth Planet is a platform for live performance for curious people of all ages, with a focus on amplifying the work of womxn, gender-variant people, and people of color. Our performances are created collaboratively by the ensemble, empowering each individual to impact the process. We challenge patriarchal traditions by centering co-authorship and long-form process; creating intentional space for reflection, responsiveness, and deviation. Our shows are designed to activate imagination, self-reflection, and a sense of adventure through the collision of dance, theatre, music, and installation. We believe that performance makers are uniquely positioned to help people envision alternative futures through artistic experiences. We aim to support growth in communities by building our projects in collaboration with the intended audiences.

In 2018, Ninth Planet partnered with Brandi Burgess to create a new work of performance for young adults. Brandi currently serves full-time as the General Manager for the Bearded Ladies Cabaret Company. She is an actor, educator, producer, and public speaker who advocates for queer visibility in the deep south. Brandi has served as leadership in diverse roles surrounding fundraising, program design, and education outreach throughout her career. Past organizations include Philadelphia Theatre Company, University of the Arts, Wolf Performing Arts Center, Prague Youth Theatre, and the New Victory Theater.
