THE TIPPING POINT - what will it take for YOU to leave home

About This Event

CORNINGWORKS, the critically acclaimed dancetheater company known for it's unique GLUE FACTORY PROJECT series - original full evening length dance theater productions created on nationally & internationally renowned performers over the age of 40 - pushes its artistic and geographic boundaries with its 2020 production, THE TIPPING POINT- what will it take for YOU to leave home? - A provocative wake up call at a time of crisis. In an unprecedented artistic collaboration with the renowned international humanitarian organization, DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS / Medecins Sans Frontieres, this raw, multi-disciplinary, and intimately sized audience-immersive work taps the growing global refugee experience. An attempt to personalize the headlines - a tangible "WHAT IF" - less about "them" and more about "how this could be us." Corning creates a moving, theatrical re-imagining of DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS critically acclaimed FORCED FROM HOME exhibition, combined with her poignant, provocative, critically acclaimed dancetheater creativity. Performed by 14 local dancer/actors and an international group of re-settled refugees, and led by a team of critically acclaimed theater designers, the work runs for 10 performances for intimately sized groups of 40 per show (20 per time slot). The work plays throughout 25 CARRICK - a new and unique Center for the Arts located in the former Birmingham United Church of Christ in Pittsburgh's South Hilltop community of Carrick.
