Accessibility: This is not wheelchair accessible.


Venture through this multi-sensory, diabolical indoor maze designed for the 70s rocker-at-heart.

Part maze, part performance, part musical homage; in this polarizing world where right is wrong

and good is bad, enter the labyrinth to discover the beautiful monster that lies within. Created

from decaying hearts and the unsolvable mystery of love, be warned, those who venture

through the maze inevitably leave a piece of their heart within its metal walls, twisting and

turning and pulsating to the beat of a cryptic hard-rock love ballad.

Please note, this is a physical adventure and guests must be able to walk about the space and

climb stairs. Unfortunately, our venue is not wheelchair accessible. This experience includes

heavy use of music, strobe lighting, fog, and may not be suitable for all visitors.

Post Labyrinth:

Skein of Heart marks the 20th anniversary of JUNK’s first Fringe performance. Following the

maze guests are invited to “Fringe: 20 Years Later” a talkback with artist Brian Sanders, during

which we will announce some exciting new projects at JUNK! Additionally, some guests may

choose to take part in beta-testing for an Escape Room (50 mins) or a VR Experience (10-15

Brian Sanders’ JUNK is known for their ingenious use of found objects and clever inventions that bridge the gap between dance and physical theater. Sanders’ choreography blends traditional dance theater with an inventiveness and physicality that gives reason for critics to hail JUNK as “Philly’s most imaginative perpetrator of dare-devilish physical theater” and declare Sanders as “the city’s most exciting choreographer.” JUNK maintains its home season in Philadelphia, PA each fall as a mainstay of the FringeArts Festival.
