May Day with Attack Theatre and Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf
Hosted by: Attack Theatre
May 25 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
Founded 23 years ago as a collaboration between two dancers and a city, Attack Theatre builds and sustains community by uniting artists and audiences through three interconnected program categories: Productions/Performances, Commissions/Collaborations, and Arts Education/Community Engagement. Attack Theatre’s Arts Education programs reach over 12,000 students, teachers, and community members annually and are comprised of in-school performances, professional development workshops for teachers, in-school Arts Education residencies, and “Creativity in the Workplace” Workshops. These high-quality programs focus on dance, health and wellness education, the creative process, and integrating kinesthetic learning into the educational environment. Programs are offered for a diverse range of participants (e.g. teachers, administrators, university students, and PreK-12 students), as well as out-of-school participants (e.g. professional dancers, seniors, community members, and corporate employees).
Attack Theatre will partner with Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf during Remake Learning Days to offer students, staff, families and community members an opportunity to learn together and celebrate the arts.
As a part of Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf’s annual May Day Performance on May 25, 2018 and Remake Learning Days, Attack Theatre will offer two, pre-performance interactive showings for all attendees to kick-off the May Day festivities. Led by Attack Theatre’s Artistic Directors, the dancers will guide audience members through a creative process and “make-a-dance” in their auditorium seats; inspired by ideas, images and themes in their personal lives and embedded within the May Day Performance. Attack Theatre dancers will then perform short, improvisational responses to these unique, audience creations.
This event is a semi-public event, with the school requesting any interested attendees to contact them for specific attendance information.
