April 28-May 1, 2019: TBD
«PoP Up» will have its U.S. premiere on October 4-6, 2019. Developed by the Tours Soundpainting Orchestra (France) and the Strike Anywhere Performance Ensemble (USA), «PoP Up» is an artistic treasure hunt. The public is guided to a series of 15-20 site-specific performances via clues on a hand-painted map. Over the course of 2-3 days, performances pop-up on the street, in windows, parks, plazas and businesses throughout one neighborhood. These short apparitions of music, dance, theater and/or visual art are inspired by interviews with local residents and business owners about that neighborhood. By injecting a series of alternately playful, poetic or poignant performances in everyday spaces, the project is designed to shift how people perceive those places and to connect community members through art. The performances are sculpted through a live-composing sign language called Soundpainting. Strike Anywhere (SA) and the Tours Soundpainting Orchestra (TSO) are two of the top Soundpainting ensembles in the world.
