A free, pop-up outdoor performance of invisibly slow dance in common, public spaces
The Pillow Project is creating a special socially-distanced THOUGHT POCKET performance concept in Downtown Pittsburgh on the iconic Strawberry Way corridor. By taking dance into everyday pedestrian contexts, this 4-hour, durational-performance is created for anyone to walk around, pass through, or pass by.
THOUGHT POCKETS are uncommon movements and unusual visual patterns unfolding in slow motion through durational-performances that speak of vulnerability, time, and the beauty of encountering the unexpected.
Our annual informal summer evening performance of short dance works, film projects, poetry, music, and new ideas from The Pillow Project and resident artists at The Space Upstairs.
This year, we will feature this event live on ZOOM, bringing our couches, coffee tables, chalk walls, and artistic curiosity right into your home... Late summer evenings at The Space Upstairs are always magical, now The Space comes to you!
