A Second Season. Aren’t we lucky to have the Kelly Strayhorn Theater, so full of dance adventure? It’s almost like a bonus right now – KST is producing a terrific second season that will add a lot of punch to the Pittsburgh dance community.
Baker & Tarpaga Dance Project returns with the local premiere of Beautiful Struggle Feb 21–22 and we will welcome back Sidra Bell Dance New York March 7–8 with the world premiere of garment. Also on tap is Sean Dorsey Dance in the Secret History of Love April 4–5.
KST’s Next Stage Dance Residency has produced some exceptionally fine productions. This year’s resident artists will be Mana Kawamura, who made a strong impression at the last newMoves Festival, and local improv queen, Gia T. Cacalano. See them Feb.1.
KST is also providing a springboard for Pittsburgh-based artists in Fresh Works, where they are given 80 rehearsal hours at The Alloy Studios to explore cross-genre collaborations. The program culminates with a performance during Unblurred: First Fridays on Penn. First up is Alan Obuzor on February 7. Click on KST for more info.
Love to see Pittsburgh dance living on the edge.
