East Liberty Live: Relative Positions by Shana Simmons

Relative Positions is a multi-disciplinary performance event to be presented on Friday, July 6, 2012. Based loosely on Improv, presented at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in 2010, the event is structured as an immersive performance “tour” through the Union Project on North Negley Ave in Pittsburgh.

Over twenty artists—choreographers, musicians, writers/poets, installation artists, and visual artists—have been commissioned to create work at the site. Each artist/group presents a 5-20 minute piece that continues on a loop throughout the evening. Audiences have a choice in their experience: staying in one area to view one piece multiple times, or moving through the venue at their own pace.
