Professors Scott Andrew and Angela Washko organized the second edition of Fail-Safe, a recurring variety performance show that invites artists with works-in-progress to present new performances in a supportive environment. The event is on November 17 at 2:00pm at The Glitter Box Theatre 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 second edition include 7D (Bruiser Beep), Lena Chen MFA ’22, Jackson McKeehan MFA ’21, Sadie Powers, and Nathaniel Sullivan (NYC).
