The Q Ball Giveaway
The Q Ball is the Quantum Theatre‘s annual benefit and this year it is celebrating its 10th anniversary. The event, themed “Hot Qture,” will feature live performances by Aqui Tango and kNOTDance as well as installations that incorporate live models donning pieces designed by Pittsburgh’s best fashion designers set with backdrops and scenery created by the theatre designers. Along with the live entertainment, catering for the event will be provided by E2, a rustic Mediterranean restaurant that features an ever-changing menu loaded with fresh produce and locally-grown and produced ingredients. Of course, there is a dance party at the ball, and to compliment everyone’s dancing skills, the bar will be providing cocktail concoctions galore. You can either choose to be a VIP guest, which will give you access to all of the night’s activities, or just go for the dance party, which will still include some live entertainment, drinks and desserts.
Since this is Q Ball’s tenth birthday, they decided to make this year extra special by asking several Pittsburgh artists (10, in fact) to create pieces that model their typical work while incorporating the letter “Q.” These pieces have been strategically placed in highly visible locations all around the city, such as Blackbird Studio in Lawrenceville, Boxheart Gallery in Bloomfield, EONS, and the Fifth Avenue Place lobby. After this pre-ball promotion is complete, the works will be auctioned off at the event. The artists featured in this project are: Seth Clark, Ron Copeland, Kyle Fischer, Ryan Lammie, Kathryn Carr, James Shipman, Michael Moran, Jennifer Bradley Morris, Mara Nadolski, and a four-artist collaboration from Pittsburgh Glass Center.
It’s all going down on Saturday, March 15th. You can purchase either $150 VIP tickets or $35 dance party tickets here for the event, which starts at 7PM for VIP and 9PM for the dance party at 933 Penn Avenue, 8th floor.
