Are you an actor, dancer, singer or musician? Strike Anywhere invites you to be a performer in POP UP: An Artistic Adventure's "ephemeral choir." You'll learn Soundpainting, a form of live composition and improvisation, and perform in the POP UP finale.
Soundpainting is a universal sign language comprising over 1500 signs that allows a group of artists to improvise together in real-time. The technique was created by New York composer Walter Thompson during the late 1970s for jazz musicians. It has since evolved into a multidisciplinary language that is practiced worldwide.
Performing artists of all experience levels ages 12 and up are welcome. Participate using the artform of your choice: If you're an actor or dancer, wear comfortable clothing you can move in. If you're a musician, bring your instrument. And singers, be prepared to sing!
In order to perform in the show, participants must attend the following:
-BOTH Soundpainting workshops on Monday, September 27th & Wednesday, September 29th from 6-8pm.
Performances at 1 pm and 5 pm on Saturday, October 2nd and Sunday, October 3rd (either all four performances or pick one day of two shows, either Saturday or Sunday).
Participants will be subject to additional health requirements for artists due to the nature of their involvement. More information will be provided to registered participants. Please reach out to Ally Tufenkjian, Education and Engagement Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about the workshop and performance schedule and expectations around participation.
