SOUNDPAINTING is the live composing sign language for musicians, actors, dancers, and visual artists working in the medium of structured improvisation. At present, the language comprises over 1200 gestures that are signed by the composer/conductor indicating the type of improvisation desired of the performers. Soundpainting is a sculpting tool. It allows a conductor to shape group improvisations in real time. The language was created by composer Walter Thompson and the Walter Thompson Orchestra (W.T.O.). S.A.'s Artistic Director, Leese Walker, has worked with the W.T.O. since 1997. She was the first actor to be soundpainted and she helped Thompson to adapt the language for use in theater. Strike Anywhere's musicians have worked with the W.T.O. since the late eighties. The language is practiced world-wide with the most exciting new developments happening in France. The Tours Soundpainting Orchestra is on the vanguard of the soundpainting movement and is well respected for their experience and innovations with the form.

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 interpersonal communication skills through theater. As their final project, students will perform original scenes within a soundpainting, working alongside the professional performers of Strike Anywhere.

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


August 30-September 3, 2017: Soundpainting - Tours, France
DES RUE COLBERT

"Des Rues Colbert..." is an international collaboration between the Strike Anywhere Performance Ensemble (NY,NY) and the Tours Soundpainting Orchestra (Tours, France). The ensembles will soundpaint stories from the Rue Colbert section of Tours. The piece is site-specific and will take place throughout the Rue Colbert neighborhood. "Des Rues Colbert..." is a project designed to shift perspective; to inject wonder, delight and poetry into everyday life. The piece is a collage of original scenes, soundscapes and images designed to disrupt the way we see the quotidian. The performance is a self-directed experience of discovery. Scenes will take place in the supermarket, on balconies, in the laundromat, in windows and alleys in the rue Colbert pedestrian section of Tours. Audience members will be issued maps to locate the scenes, and they will be invited to contribute to the final soundpainting.
VENUE: Rue Colbert
ADDRESS: Pedestrian Section Rue Colbert, Tours, France
