Fail-Safe, a new curated performance series from Professors Angela Washko and Scott Andrew, invites artists with works-in-progress to present new performances in a supportive environment. The first free performance event will take place on Saturday, June 22 at 7:30 pm at Glitter Box Theater, an accessible artist-run community theater space, in Pittsburgh.
The curated performance series was created with the intention to become a safe space for failure – a safe space to perform works across fields that may not be fully figured out yet. In addition to presenting live performances in their early stages, Fail-Safe incorporates conversation about performance into the framework of the event itself. In a true variety show fashion, performances may span the fields of performance art, cabaret, experimental sound art, interdisciplinary theater, digitally mediated performance, readings, dance and more.
Performers for the first edition include: Anna Azizzy, bubblesort (Angela Washko & Jesse Stiles), Jesse Factor, Samir Gangwani, Nathalie Moreno, and The Diva Saga (Veronica Bleaus/John Musser & Scott Andrew).
