1. 2020 Digital Series
Texture Contemporary Ballet
Friday, January 22, 2021
Online, 8:00 - 9:20 PM

Texture Contemporary Ballet is excited to unroll their own 2020 Digital Series. Enjoy four performances from this collection of dance pieces filmed around Pittsburgh and presented for viewing on your device that you can watch from the comfort of your own home. In addition, view an encore presentation with local favorites, Meeting of Important People, recorded at New Hazlett Theater.

Alan Obuzor, Executive and Artistic Director, will be present for a virtual discussion. At moments like this, the arts show themselves to be increasingly relevant and needed. People's very existence is deeply entwined within creating, observing, reacting, thinking, moving, growing, evolving, interacting, and so much more. Dance is a way to experience all of the things that life is made up of.

2. |:I Virtual Short Film Dance Premiere
Attack Theatre
Saturday, January 23, 2021
Online, 2:30 - 4:00 PM

Created against the backdrop of a global pandemic and social isolation, I : I follows four individuals as they excavate memories and experiences on a journey toward new ways of being and connecting with one another. The title of the film creates space for interpretation: one to one or eye to eye; a mirror image, a chance to reflect; a stretch of highway on the long road ahead. All of these images and more find a home in the original movement and music of this dance film by Janessa Clark, in collaboration with Attack Theatre.

Stay after the show to meet the artists of Attack Theatre. In a guided question and answer session, the artistic team (comprised of Attack Theatre Artistic Directors, Attack Theatre dancers, designers and musicians) will provide insight into the creative process of I:I.
