Pittsburgh-based artists City of Play and slowdanger invite you to enter a landscape of multidisciplinary performances, interactive technology, and immersive adventures that question the meaning of intimacy. This event includes several new works, designed during the artists’ experiences in the inaugural year of Performers at Play.
Empathy Machine — An installation of responsive light, movement, and interaction within the Hall of Sculpture. This performance challenges observers to sense their own presence in the space. The installation was created by slowdanger in collabortion with ProjectileObjects and Char Stiles.
Subtle Viewing — Experience the galleries in a completely new way through these in-gallery dance and performance art installations by slowdanger. These subtle encounters allow patrons to create new emotional connections to the artworks on view.
Resonant Body — This installed performance for a limited audience invites visitors to witness and experience a new dance technology that translates a dancer’s motion into vibration and sound waves through sensor technology, electrical current, and magnetic drivers. This work is a collabortion between Robert Zacharias and slowdanger.
Small Precious Objects — Join a game of giving secret gifts to people you will never meet.
The Lost Crate of H.P. Witherspoon — Solve an infamous puzzle box with a small group.
Social Ceremonies — Participate in original, subversive high ceremonies for large groups designed by City of Play.
Emotional Landscapes — Enjoy a one-on-one session with illustrator Cynthia Lee as she transforms your feelings and emotions into comic strips.

Lightlab Performance Series is an artist-run performance series that provides platforms for diverse voices in experimental performance. Founded in 2013 by Taylor Knight and David Bernabo and now curated with Anna Thompson, Lightlab is an event series meant to encourage local dance and performance artists to experiment with form, composition, improvisation, and context. Over 5 years and 16 events with local and national artists, the series continues to present experiments and has expanded to include music performance, video screenings, and art lectures. In late 2014 and early 2015, a residency program was introduced, offering out of town performers rehearsal space and an opportunity to perform their work at a Lightlab event at the end of the residency week, further connecting local and national artists.
Lightlab would like to thank The Space Upstairs, Murray Horne and The Cultural Trust, and the Miller Gallery for donating performance spaces. Lightlab is a self-sustaining, self-funded performance series.
