fôr is a bi-city multidisciplinary collaborative exchange between Pittsburgh based movement-sound duo slowdanger and MICHIYAYA Dance. Between June and December 2017, the two duos will process in intensive periods between NYC and PGH, offering open-level movement workshops, open rehearsals, and events where the local communities can engage with the artists.

The process will conclude in December with performances of fôr, a collaboratively built movement, sound, and visual work on December 2nd and 3rd at the Center for Performance Research -CPR in Brooklyn and on December 15th and 16th at the Kelly Strayhorn Theater Alloy Studios in Pittsburgh.

The piece will explore perspective and identity as a constantly shifting state of defining and destroying boundaries in space. This initiative is intended to examine how bridges can be built between national artistic communities through collaboration. This project is made possible with a grant from the Opportunity Fund (PGH) and our fiscal sponsor Unique Projects, Inc.
