3. Are You Still There?
Attack Theatre
Pittsburgh Coliseum
Tuesday, October 7
Meeting time 6:00 PM

Separated by streets, ideas, and lifetimes, we meet through dropped calls that ring off walls and reach for a clear connection. Why do we hold onto that fading line that leaves us asking, Are You Still There?

Are You Still There? explores the multitude of connections. Audiences will enter a performance space of mobile set pieces and shifting perspectives, with corded phones of past decades circling overhead, lifting dancers off the ground, and hanging unanswered. Connections that are intimate, far away, or held only in the heart; this dance performance will explore the many barriers that strain or strengthen that connection. In this theatrical new work, dancers move through barriers that are both visible and invisible, holding on to a fading line that ties them together.

Students are invited to stay after the show to meet the artists of Attack Theatre’s Are You Still There? in a guided question and answer session.

Dinner at Thai Place before the concert.
