Attack Theatre


Our Work

Founded in 1994 as a collaboration between two dancers and a city, Attack Theatre fuses modern dance, original live music, and interdisciplinary art forms to create engaging dance performances. We create work at the intersection of art and community, resulting in productions that are personal, authentic, welcoming, and fearless.



Attack Theatre builds community with artists and audiences through the process and production of personal, accessible dance-based performance. Blending varied art forms with dynamic contemporary dance, Attack Theatre creates passionate portrayals of everyday life.


Through inherently collaborative and deliberately inter-dependent artistic and educational programs, Attack Theatre will continue to demonstrate its uniquely integrated approach to art and living to connect communities, artists and audiences in Pittsburgh and around the world.




We foster creative partnerships with artists, audiences, and communities as an integral part of our artistic vision.


We forge connections that extend beyond the company's boundaries, building relationships with our audience and our community.


We cultivate a spirit of inquiry and experimentation at the heart of our creative process.


We nurture the next generation of artists, thinkers, and leaders through programs that are rooted in reflection, investigation, and imagination. 


We open our doors and our process to anyone who seeks to challenge their perspective and expand artistic boundaries.
