Some Assembly Required

Presented by Attack Theatre at Contemporary Craft, Pittsburgh PA

Sep 21 - 22 2017
Some Assembly Required

Blurring the lines between visual art, music, and dance, Some Assembly Required will engage you in a process performance of improvisation and co-creation.

Some Assembly Required offers audiences a new way to view visual art, a new lens to experience dance and live music, and a new outlook on the culture of engaging arts experiences. Beginning with a short dance with live cello and percussion music, this performance evolves through a lively, guided conversation with the performers about selected works of art. This discussion generates the inspiration for improvisational movement and music that will be overlaid onto the existing dance structure.
