Each and Every

A Documentary look at Pittsburgh’s 412 Food Rescue and the Kelly Strayhorn theater for the benter Foundation’s exhibition, ‘Each and every’

 

 Released: Ramona Jones in red with cap and loipop. Angela Urban dancing under arm.
 Kenneth Peagler, piano player. Kelly-Strayhorn Theater rehearsal and performance "Poogie Bell and His All-Stars" for The 10th annual Suite Life is a musical tribute to the life and legacy of KST namesake Billy Strayhorn. Reared in Homewood, the legendary pianist, arranger, and composer studied music at an early age, then joined a musical ensemble, performed on local radio, and wrote music, before making an indelible mark in the world of jazz. For decades, Strayhorn made essential contributions to The Duke Ellington Orchestra, sharing in a rich collaboration and shaping American songwriting and culture. This year’s concert features Poogie Bell and His All-Stars remixing and reimagining Strayhorn’s classics as we celebrate his continued influence on artists today and work to ensure that his work inspires generations to come. 
Proceeds benefit the Strayhorn Legacy Fund, which supports youth and family programming at KST.

 KST’s Alloy Studios: Choreographer Maree ReMalia, video artist and photographer Gigi Gatewood (NY), and dancer Lillian Cho (DC) employ their Fresh Works residency to forge a new collaborative project that blends movement, storytelling, live performance and visuals in ways in that convey a spectrum of experience, illuminate poignant moments, and incite thoughtful humor. Following a story-gathering process with individuals from the cast, community, and beyond, the creative team explores  methods of sharing stories not often heard and pairing voices in ways that might initially seem unlikely. The resulting blend of live performance and video seeks to acknowledge the multiplicity of our lived experience and to broaden the range of movement and bodies represented in dance.
Part of KST’s Fresh Works creative residency program, providing artists with space to research, explore and play, as well as production support to develop and present new works in progress.
