fôr is a bi-city multidisciplinary collaborative exchange between PGH based movement-sound duo slowdanger//Taylor Knight & Anna Thompson (www.slowdangerslowdanger.com) and NYC based interdisciplinary duo MICHIYAYA dance (http://michiyayadance.org). Between June and December the two duos will process in intensive periods between NYC and PGH, offering open-level movement workshops, open rehearsals, and events where the local communities can engage with the artists. The process will conclude in December 2017 with performances of fôr, a collaboratively built movement, sound, and visual work on December 8th and 9th at the Center for Performance Research in BK and December 15th and 16th in PGH (venue TBD). The piece will explore perspective and identity as a constantly shifting state of defining and destroying boundary in space. This initiative is intended to examine how bridges can be built between national artistic communities through collaboration. This project is made possible with a grant from the Opportunity Fund (PGH) and fiscal sponsorship from Unique Projects Inc of NYC.
