CANCELLED

 

Follow These Rivers Festival is a one-day music and art festival dedicated to raising awareness and funds for the ongoing environmental crises that our rivers, oceans, and waterways face today. The mission of the festival is to educate through art and music that our local actions can “follow the rivers” to contribute to global impacts and initiatives.

The day will begin with a river clean-up at Millvale Riverfront Park at 9am. Following the cleanup, the music festival will take place at the New Hazlett Theater in the afternoon. Doors will open at 1:30 pm and the music will begin at 2pm.

The festival will feature both regional musical artists, and a Pittsburgh river clean-up. We will bring an entire day together to celebrate life, art and our earth. Our goal is to raise awareness and funds, which we will give back to our partner organizations, both regionally and nationally, that donate their time and efforts to making our planet more sustainable and safer.

The Dragon of Polish Hill

Presented by New Hazlett as part of the Community Supported Art Performance Series

Thu-Fri, September 10-11

RECITAL PREVIEW

The Dragon of Polish Hill tells the story of two neighborhood residents who were destined never to know each other until Stanley Onion, a 115-year-old man with dementia, and Willy James, a rabbit-eared performance artist, are brought together by a chance encounter. The circumstances that follow force Willy to consider his own values in light of their friendship. This performance explores cultures colliding in a changing urban neighborhood.

The son of an embalmer dad and an elementary school teacher/quilt maker mom, Dave English logically grew up to be a puppeteer. A native of Pittsburgh, Dave currently lives in Polish Hill. He is the president of the Puppetry Guild of Pittsburgh and holds a BFA in Theatre & Puppetry from West Virginia University. Dave’s collaborator Will Schutze is an artist, songwriter and puppeteer from Austin. He comes from a 40-year-old Texas tradition of marionettes, having cut his teeth at state fairs and massive holiday shows with World on a String puppet theater.
