The U.S. Premiere of PoP Up: An Artistic Treasure Hunt is developed and performed by Strike Anywhere Performance Ensemble and Tours Soundpainting Orchestra (TSO) . Over the course of three days, audiences will engage in various treasure hunts and discover 15 site-specific performances via clues on a hand-painted map of Fort Greene, Brooklyn. Inspired by interviews with local Fort Greene residents and business owners, «PoP Up» will be performed by a collective of multidisciplinary performers in public spaces scattered around the neighborhood of inspiration. The performances are composed in real time via Soundpainting, a live-composing sign language that allows a conductor to communicate directly with improvising performers (dancers, actors, musicians).
«PoP Up» will be performed by a collective of multidisciplinary performers in public spaces scattered around the neighborhood of inspiration. Starting location for each performance is secret and registered audience members will receive notification day before the show.
