May 3, 2020: Soundpainting - Brooklyn, NY
MAKE FRIENDS! MAKE ART! SOUNDPAINTING SUNDAYS IN THE SLOPE!

Slip into a Strike Anywhere Soundpainting. Every first Sunday of the month, Strike Anywhere will appear at Young Ethel's in Park Slope Brooklyn. We invite all dancers, actors, musicians (professional or otherwise) to come and play together. During this informal evening, we will share our love for Soundpainting, the sign-language that allows us to live-compose with multi-disciplinary improvisers. We're developing a team of performers who could become part of a site-specific Soundpainting Brigade.

Grab a drink, learn a handful of Soundpainting signs, check out a short demo by Strike Anywhere and then create spontaneous art with the ensemble.

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 in 35 countries across the world. Strike Anywhere is the preeminent performance group in the United States practicing Soundpainting. SA's Artistic Director, Leese Walker, was the first actress to be soundpainted and helped Thompson to adapt the language for theater. SA's musicians have worked with Thompson since the 1980's and are some of the most experienced Soundpainting performers in the world.

Bring your instrument, wear comfortable clothes, come play!

June 28-29, 2020 Sunday at 1PM & 5:30PM; Monday at 5:30PM
Developed by the Tours Soundpainting Orchestra (France) and the Strike Anywhere Performance Ensemble (USA), «PoP Up» is an artistic treasure hunt. The public is guided to a series of site-specific performances via clues on a hand-painted map. Over the course of 2 days, performances pop-up on the street, in windows, parks and plazas throughout Hanover and around campus. These short apparitions of music, dance, theater and/or visual art are inspired by interviews with local residents. By injecting a series of alternately playful, poetic or poignant performances in everyday spaces, the project is designed to inspire wonder, joy and whimsy. The performances, performed by the Strike Anywhere Performance Ensemble will be sculpted through a live-composing sign language called Soundpainting. Strike Anywhere (SA) is the preeminent Soundpainting ensemble in the United States. Community members will be invited to attend free Soundpainting workshops while the company is in residence and will be invited to perform as part of the finale of the piece.

The unique, custom-designed treasure hunt will feature 5 different pop up performances. Each adventure lasts approximately one hour and 45 minutes.
