November 15, 2019: Windows and Mirrors - Queens, NY
STUDENTS TAKE THE STAGE

Student storytellers from the International HS for Health Sciences (IHSHS) join Strike Anywhere's musicians on stage as they share true stories from their lives framed by live music. IHSHS students are all recent immigrants and the stories range from heart-wrenching to hilarious. The performance is the result of a 12-session residency with professional playwright Amy E. Witting who worked with seniors in 3 of Alex Porter's English Language Arts classes. Prepare to be inspired by the strength, resiliency and sheer courage of these young people. They are nothing short of amazing.

Students in the workshop will be introduced to the Soundpainting language with a hands-on master class.

Soundpainting is the universal sign-language for live-composition. The language is comprised of over 1500 signs and allows a conductor/composer to sculpt a performance in real-time with improvising actors, musicians, dancers and visual artists. The technique was created by N.Y. composer Walter Thompson beginning in the late 1970's for use with jazz musicians. It has evolved into a multidisciplinary language that is practiced worldwide. Leese Walker was the first actress to be soundpainted and helped Thompson to adapt the language for theater.
