Body In Ten Parts: A new movement theater piece, Pittsburgh Pa



BODY IN TEN PARTS

Over the course of a single night an anonymous sleeper is disembodied.

A new movement theater piece directed by Nina Sarnelle and sponsored by the Carnegie Mellon School of Art.

Working with an original sound design composed by local artists, diverse movement collaborators and an appetite for the uncanny,Body in Ten Parts deconstructs the body into its various parts (head, elbow, foot, knee, etc.) and reinvents these parts in ways we haven’t seen before. This interdisciplinary live performance is inspired by innovators like Mummenschanz, Pilobolus, Philippe Genty and Philippe Decoufle, as well as many modern practitioners of pantomime, physical comedy, stage illusions, and experimental theater.

All performances at the Greybox Theatre, 3595 Butler St, Pittsburgh.

The Pittsburgh Art Blog

The Pittsburgh Art Blog features selected pittsburgh artists and upcoming exhibits with photos from the artists and galleries. since the major press outlets do not go beyond a directory listing of exhibits, blogs are needed to promote pittsburgh artists and their work. the blog also calls attention to the inferiority complex of pittsburgh art and how it's perpetuated by the major players in town. Started on August 20, 2007.pittsburgh area galleries and art venues are listed at the sister site www.PghGalleries.com.

the blog and website are volunteer projects from fine art photographer and pittsburgh artist advocate rick byerly, www.RickByerly.com.
