SOUND INSTALLATION TO PROTECT THE HUDSON RIVER

Strike Anywhere will work with an 11th grade science class to create an original sound installation with live performance, exploring the potential effects of radioactive waste on the Hudson River. Strike Anywhere will collaborate with Gotham science teacher Rayhan Ahmed on the curation and delivery of a practice-as-research science-arts project where students will analyze and make personal connections through their research around “Indian Point Conundrum.” Using the scientific method, students will research the potential effects of the release of 1 million gallons of radioactive water into the Hudson River, which could happen as early as August 2023.

WINDOWS AND MIRRORS is a storytelling residency book-ended by two performances. A professional storytelling show kick-starts the residency and features Strike Anywhere performers sharing true stories about pivotal moments in their lives accompanied by live music from SA musicians. Residencies pair a professional playwright and/or actor with a school or community group. The residency focuses on the elements of an engaging story, on solo performance and culminates with every participant performing their own story. A final show highlights a select group of storytellers accompanied by Strike Anywhere musicians. The residency is available for youth grades 6-12, college students and adults.

April 22-28, 2024: POP UP: An Artistic Adventure - Bethlehem, PA
POP UP: BETHLEHEM

SA’s touring production, POP UP: An Artistic Adventure, in partnership with Zoellner Arts Center at Lehigh University and area community partners, will delight Bethlehem, PA with performances April 22-28, 2024.

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 will pop-up all over 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 6 different pop up performances. Each adventure lasts approximately one hour and 50 minutes. Audience members can expect to walk a mile and a half.
