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.
