After winning the FringeNYC Overall Excellence Award and the Creative Award for Best Production at Prague Fringe Festival, the Off-Broadway hit HUMAN FRUIT BOWL makes its Philadelphia premiere as part of the LiveArts Festival. This acclaimed portrait of live nude modeling is written by Andrea Kuchlewska, performed by Harmony Stempel, and directed by Jessi D. Hill.  Performances begin September 7 at Voyeur.

Ever wonder what goes through the mind of a live nude model while she poses? Structured as a live fine art modeling session, HUMAN FRUIT BOWL attempts to answer that question while it delves into the mysterious death of Renee Monchaty, muse and model to legendary French painter Pierre Bonnard. Part story, part mystery, and part art history, it is a unique and compelling look at the complicated relationships between artists and their models.

Harmony Stempel is a Brooklyn based actor and solo performer who has performed to acclaim in NYC, Prague, Amsterdam and Hong Kong.  Andrea Kuchlewska’s plays have received awards from FringeNYC as well as the Prague and Amsterdam Fringes, and have played to sold-out audiences in NYC.

Hill is Associate Artistic Director at terraNOVA Collective and has directed for NY Theater Workshop, The Public, Women's Project, Primary Stages, The New Group, Culture Project, New Dramatists, The Lark, The Playwrights Realm, The Playwrights Center, Chicago Dramatists, New Georges, NY Stage & Film/Powerhouse, Ensemble Studio Theatre, and others.
