Fresh Works is Kelly Strayhorn Theater’s month-long creative learning program for Pittsburgh-based artists. The program provides artists with production support, lighting and sound design, and 80 hours at The Alloy Studios to research, explore, play, and finally share a work-in-progress performance. Fresh Works debuted in 2013 and, so far, this residency incubator has benefited seven lead artists.
Join The Alloy Studios at Kelly Strayhorn Theater in September as it welcomes Mark Conway Thompson for a new movement theater performance called Kimono. Kimono explores the theme of social justice through the experience of victims, the evil of predation, and the culpability of predators. With the help of a woman who appears on his doorsteps, a traumatized man, an artist, reconstituted his life through the transformational work of creating beautiful kimonos. The result is that together they discover the will and the courage to do that remaining thing that should be done – to go and call out, expose and, symbolically drive back the predator.
