CALENDAR OF EVENTS     [ History ]

June 19-30, 2017: Soundpainting - Saint-Pierre-des-Corps, France
THIRD DEVELOPMENT RESIDENCY FOR "POP-UP"

"Pop Up" is a series of pop-up performances designed to inject wonder and delight into everyday spaces. Short, site-specific pieces of music, theater, dance and visual art appear on the street, in windows, parks, plazas and businesses of a specific neighborhood. The performances are inspired by real stories collected through interviews with local residents and business owners. Artists meet one-on-one with locals to gather stories about the neighborhood. Those stories are then reflected through the lens of music, dance, visual art or theater appearing in the very place where the story was collected or took place. The material is then transformed in the moment by a composer/conductor who sculpts the artists performances through a live-composing sign language called Soundpainting. Pieces are poetic, transitory, alternately abstract, hilarious or poignant but always surprising. The project is designed to connect people by highlighting the extraordinary within the ordinary; to shift the way we see a familiar space by peeping into the lives of the inhabitants through poetic, momentary dreamscapes.

October 2016-June 2017: Custom-Designed In-School Residencies - New York, New York
SA CELEBRATES 11 YEARS OF WORKING WITH IMMIGRANT YOUTH AT MIHS

This year marks SA's 11th year at Manhattan International High School (MIHS). This NYC public high school serves recently arrived immigrant youth. SA has been a trusted partner at the school, applying theatrical techniques in the classroom to help teachers teach their curriculum in an active, hands-on way. This year, we will work with Bonnie MacSaveny's senior classes building communication skills through theater. As their final project, students will write and perform an original play about their experience as young immigrants in this country. They will work with award-winning playwright Amy Witting to craft the script. SA's Artistic Director, Leese Walker will direct. Students will perform the play at their school, working alongside the professional performers of Strike Anywhere. In addition, students will attend a professional reading of the play at Abingdon Theatre Company.

On Strike Anywhere's Program: "Students are more apt to participate in class after they go through the program. They feel more confident about what they're able to do. Their writing starts to improve. They start to ask a lot of questions and also seek a lot of help and I really think it has a lot to do with the theater program." - Former M.I.H.S. Principal Alan Krull
