Connecting Through Art: ADA and the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre School
March 12, 2019
Students at the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre School staged a performance at the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with German Artist-in-Residence Karina Smigla-Bobinski. In this performance, the dancers interacted with ADA, a large, helium-filled balloon covered in charcoal spikes that create unique marks on the walls, ceilings, and performers as the balloon moves through the space. The performance was designed to encourage audience participation and interpersonal connection through art. In this video, Smigla-Bobinski and the young performers discuss their experiences with ADA and the potential for art to impact society and bring people together.
