Apart From Me

Part of the CSA Performance Series

Thursday, February 88PM

UPGRADE TO THE NEW SEASON

Using a combination of touch sensors, soundscapes and wearable fabric sculptures, artists H. Gene Thompson, Arvid Tomayko, Anna Azizzy, 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.

READ THE PREVIEW

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.

Anna Azizzy is a performance artist, video artist, and experimental musician. Their work creates space where laughter leads to learning and they are passionate about inserting femininity, humor, tenderness, joy, life, queerness, honesty, and more into the spaces they occupy.

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.

Holmes and Watson

Presented by Kinetic Theatre Company

Fri-Sun, February 16-March 4

Sherlock Holmes has not been seen for more than three years and is presumed dead following his confrontation with Moriarty at Reichenbach Falls. Dr. Watson is called upon to disprove the many frauds, fakes and charlatans who have popped up claiming to be Holmes. Suddenly…a newspaper clipping arrives. A remote mental institution on an island off the coast of Scotland reports that three patients have been recently admitted, each claiming to be the late detective.

Jeffrey Hatcher wrote the screenplay for the 2015 film, Mr. Holmes, starring Ian McKellen. His ingenious new thriller receives its Pittsburgh premiere in a boldly atmospheric production by Kinetic Theatre, starring David Whalen.

Part of the CSA Performance Series

Thursday, April 128PM

UPGRADE TO THE NEW SEASON

Felecia’s body betrays her. Her husband rejects her. Her society exiles her to a place where the beliefs are a mockery, but whose residents welcome her with open (albeit misshapen) arms. Her new life is stable enough, but things are not what they seem. A quiet war of belief is about to erupt, and Felecia will be forced to take sides. Büer’s Kiss is a multimedia comics experience featuring voice actors, foley effects, and projected images.

Carl Antonowicz is a cartoonist and performer based in Pittsburgh. He graduated from the Center for Cartoon Studies in 2009 and has been steadily building a body of comics work based around his independent research into Medical History, Epidemiology, and the Medieval Period.
