THE SPACE UPSTAIRS
established 2006 and ongoing
Since 2006, The Space Upstairs has been The Pillow Project's full-time homebase and wild, creative heart. It is an unexpected warehouse-loft gallery-lounge located in the East end of Pittsburgh situated above Construction Junction and has been consistently active and organically growing as our creative expression in every facet. The atmosphere is a direct extension of the soul and intention of The Pillow Project, one of permission and comfort, innovation and exploration, freedom and risk, with all creators and witnesses welcome.
It is at The Space Upstairs that our philosophy and methodologies of our jazz have come into being. It is at The Space Upstairs -- in its pools of saturated light and fleets of coffee tables and couches and lamps and poetically chalked walls -- that our Projects come off The Pillow and break into reality.
The Space Upstairs is our multiversity and art house for jazzing theories and practices on new ideas in performance happenings, helping us ask and challenge the questions "What is Performance?", "Who is a Dancer?", and "How can Dance Performance be experienced?"
