Inflatable Space 



    April 13  AND 14 - The Kelly Strayhorn Theater (5941 Penn)  AT 8PM


 Visually stunning, Inflatable Space features playful work weaves together idiosyncratic juxtapositions in a dramatic tale about possible extraterrestrial life, moments on earth and new interstellar discoveries. Colombian pop star, Juan Gabirel Turbay creates a sonic landscape using the tracks on the Golden Record while LA based video artist, Spencer Sheridan delivers a playful and evocative video design that launches this work beyond normal theatrical conventions.


Thaddeus Phillips teams up with critically acclaimed actor Ean Sheehy to deploy an assemblage of custom-crafted inflatable scenery that expands, contracts and collapses as he explores a universe of creation and destruction. Starting with a reprinted edition of Carl Sagan’s legendary Golden Record—humanity’s most viable message to other worlds, launched into space in 1977—Phillips theatrically examines a selected archival history of life on earth.

Lewis and Clark History Hike

April 7, 2018, 10:00 AM - 04:30 PM
One of the ongoing debates of American history is where exactly did our greatest western expedition begin. From the mind of Jefferson at Monticello to the Falls of the Ohio near Louisville, Kentucky to St. Louis, Missouri, many communities have laid claim to this honor, but none has such a clear, logical case to make than Pittsburgh. Join national reenactor and living historian, John McNulty, as we explore the many connections our region has to this famous expedition including the back story of how the two captains became friends in the years before the adventure began. 
We will cover some of Pittsburgh’s most diverse, rugged and beautiful terrain stopping from time to time to learn about the past, discuss efforts to extend the national historic trail to Pittsburgh and share information about a wildlife conservation project on nearby Brunot’s Island. 
Register and find out more about all the activities offered by Venture Outdoors. Activities offered by this group often fill up early so reserve your spot as soon as possible.

Peace presented by The Bach Choir
March 24 & 25 at Union Project


The music presented in this performance seeks the peace so desired around the world. Over centuries musicians have written works that reflect this emotion and our concert will feature settings of the simple but powerful text, Dona Nobis Pacem, by several well-known—and some not as well-known—composers. Expressing the sentiment in the text of “Grant us Peace” encourages us all to seek this state of being.

The Bach Choir is joined for this performance by Syrian poet Osama Alomar, reading selections from his works. Born in Damascus, Syria  and now living in Pittsburgh via Chicago, Osama Alomar is one of the most well-respected Arabic poets writing today, and a prominent practitioner of the Arabic al-qisa al-qasira jiddan the “very short story.”
