April 27-28, 2024: POP UP: An Artistic Adventure - Bethlehem, PA
POP UP: AN ARTISTIC ADVENTURE in BETHLEHEM, PA

SA’s touring production, POP UP: An Artistic Adventure, in partnership with Zoellner Arts Center at Lehigh University and area community partners, will delight Bethlehem, PA with performances April 27-28, 2024.

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 site-specific performances via clues on a hand-painted map. Over the course of 2 days, performances will pop-up all over campus. These short apparitions of music, dance, theater and/or visual art are inspired by interviews with local residents. By injecting a series of alternately playful, poetic or poignant performances in everyday spaces, the project is designed to inspire wonder, joy and whimsy. The performances, performed by the Strike Anywhere Performance Ensemble will be sculpted through a live-composing sign language called Soundpainting. Strike Anywhere (SA) is the preeminent Soundpainting ensemble in the United States. Community members will be invited to attend free Soundpainting workshops while the company is in residence and will be invited to perform as part of the finale of the piece.

The unique, custom-designed treasure hunt will feature 6 different pop up performances. Each adventure lasts approximately one hour and 50 minutes. Audience members can expect to walk a mile and a half.
