A photography display and dance performance

 

This is an event that focuses on human experience: specifically our internal landscapes and isolation. A collaboration between choreographer and photographer revealing two bodies of work infused with these ideas. By challenging themselves and exposing their vulnerability to the public, these artists will provide a safe space to question:  “How can I be a better human to myself, and to others?”


 

Artist Bios:

Sarah is a creator and performer with a focus on site-specific, modern dance. She utilizes performance to challenge audiences while considering their guest experience. By exposing her personal vulnerability and internal landscapes, she provides permission for audiences to approach their own. Through collaboration with other mediums she is able to curate safe spaces that elevate this experience and the work of the artists involved. Her intent is to build more social space for the radically soft parts of us.

 

Taylor is a Pittsburgh native and audacious street photographer who focuses on landscape and portraiture. She values the unnoticed and forgotten elements of everyday life in local communities and cultures. Her artistic goal is to challenge the public to open their gaze and to illuminate injustices. This project touches on personal struggles and allows her to positively promote internal landscapes that strongly affect our external experiences. With this piece, she hopes to humanize the feelings of isolation and overcoming loneliness in a communal setting promoting togetherness
