Steel Valley Rhythms

Location: 16 Borland Building (ADRI)

Michele Dunleavy, Choreographer

Steel Valley Rhythms (SVR) is an ongoing project that uses sound and movement to explore Western Pennsylvania's deep connections to the iron and steel industries. Inspired by visits to the Carrie Blast Furnaces, SVR combines percussive dance, music, projected images, video, and recorded oral histories allowing audience members to draw connections between past and present, while challenging perceived boundaries between labor and art. This project is supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
