Pittsburgh Explodes onto the Scene

Kudos to Pittsburgh -and I’m assuming the inimitable Ben Harrison had a lot to do with this – for their upcoming Pittsburgh International Festival of Firsts.

I wish I had a travel budget and could go see this – it has a great and fascinating line-up. I have seen Jo Stromgren’s The Department and I have seen work by Kassys, though not the piece being presented here. Rudresh Mahanthappa’s Samdhi:Diasporic Connections sounds great, Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips have composed a score for Andy Warhol’s legendary “screen tests” and I’m very curious about Ballet Maribor from Slovenia who say their ballet is “Shakespeare meets Radiohead”…

If any anonymous donor wants to subsidize a trip to Pittsburgh….
