Laws of Attraction
Laws of Attraction is a whirl-wind contemporary dance performance that explores the complexities of human relationships through the physics of the world around us. “The fearless physicality and brilliant imagination of Attack Theatre is one of Pittsburgh’s treasures” (Pittsburgh Tribune Review, 2016).In a complicated world of ups and downs, some laws are meant to be broken.
In the companion educational program, Science Moves!, students will investigate the nexus between science and dance. Through in-school workshops and performances, students will engage in acreative, movement-based approach to explore the science concepts that inspired Laws of Attraction.
Some Assembly Required
Some Assembly Required is a unique performance experience that blurs the lines between visual art, music, and dance; and between audience and performer. Some Assembly Required engages the audience with creation, improvisation, and performance inspired by specific works of art.
Fusing choreography and composition with visual art, Some Assembly Required was originally commissioned for the Carnegie Museum of Art (Pittsburgh). Inspired by the work of Philip Yenawine, former director of education at the Museum of Modern Art, this process gives the audience the ability to influence and interact with the creative process, and simultaneously allows for a facilitated discussion.
Some Assembly Required was recently performed at the Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University. Please click here to learn more about that performance.
