Pittsburgh Performance Duo slowdanger Invites You to Sunday Movement Classes
Located at 214 N. Lexington Street in Pittsburgh’s East End, The Space Upstairs offers a zone where new ideas and musings can come to life through spontaneous performance and shared experience. This spontaneity is achieved with some help from the Pillow Project, an umbrella project defining physical (post) jazz through improvised dance.
In conjunction with these two initiatives, the Pittsburgh based performance art duo, slowdanger, will be guiding weekly movement classes every Sunday from 6-8PM with a $5 suggested donation.
The duo is made up of partners Taylor and Anna, who use their bodies as mediums to convey visual imagery and artistic concepts in a way that is nearly impossible to recreate once the exercise is complete. It’s difficult to get a taste of their style through plain text; they define themselves on their website more creatively.
Taylor and Anna have been active in the Pillow Project, as well as the Space Upstairs, since 2010. Their weekly classes are aimed at guiding participants to experience new connections of their bodies and surroundings, while simultaneously meeting new people and learning new things. They say, “These connections will be used to play, investigate, explore and regenerate the self.”
There is no minimum or maximum experience necessary to participate. Newcomers are encouraged to step out of their shell and straight into the movement to see where it takes them!
