Stella is seventeen and ready for what’s next. Chafing at the confines of her increasingly strict religious upbringing, music has become her escape. She shares a too-small town with Jacky, a restless fellow songwriter. A chance meeting on a lonely Sunday night sets in motion a chain of events that will profoundly shift both of their lives. A workshop of a new play laced with music, Between Us and Grace is an exploration of creation, faith, and the price of inspiration.

Apart From Me

Part of the CSA Performance Series

Thursday, February 88PM

SUBSCRIBE TO THE NEW SEASON

Using a combination of touch sensors, soundscapes and wearable fabric sculptures, artists H. Gene Thompson, Arvid Tomayko, and Ru Emmons create a language around the push and pull of human connection.

Elastic wearables become membranes to resist and barriers to break, both joining and separating. The performers activate their environment with embedded sensors that control the soundscape, taking the audience on an abstract journey of language through touch and separation.

H. Gene Thompson’s work questions human connectivity through the exploration of wearable fabric sculptures, creating spaces that challenge social boundaries. Morphing wearables with movement, Thompson creates images that distort the state of stable consciousness.

Arvid Tomayko is an experimental musician and multimedia artist. Their unique auditory and visual experiences explore the intersection of electronic sound performance, process driven composition, and interactive installation.

Ru Emmons is a queer, nonbinary Pittsburgh native. For Emmons, movement is a way of reclaiming their scrambled body and inviting others to do the same.
