What We've Been Doing And Fantastical Things To Come

May - September 2017

a site specific dance by Tzveta Kassabova and Shua Group with sound and text by Billy Mark

Through languages of dance, image and sound, What We've Been Doing and Fantastical Things To Come, explored a place in transition: a sewer hole, a pile of mildewed plywood, a collection of tire irons and car keys. The performance was a way of noticing a place, a former warehouse/auto garage, and welcoming its transformation into a place for imagination, creativity, and community through the performing arts.

Detroit Bureau of Sound Concerts

May - October 2017

These series of performances presented by the Detroit Bureau of Sound featured various Michigan and Wisconsin-based music groups and solo artists such as Jon Brown, Steve Curtin, Saajtak, Skewed and Such, and David Shettler.

 

Sounds in the form of electronic drones, modular synthesizers, and metallic instruments engulfed the expansive space that is Andy. These evenings explored the questions: What can art offer us? Can we obtain peace through a performance? Is there meaning in witnessing something beautiful? Can music offer us solace?

Untitled 

May 11 &12 2018

a multimedia collaboration by Shua Group, Tzveta Kassabova, Billy Mark, Stephane Garin and Thierry Escarmant.

Set by Vince Mountain

This interdisciplinary and collaborative performance tested the performers' ideas of themselves in an effort to transform each other and the space, as well as offer to the audience something, somehow meaningful. 

"Untitled" presented striking kinetic, vocal, and visual experiences, both intimate and broadly political.

Interdisciplinary artist and improvisational poet Billy Mark and dancer/choreographers Joshua Bisset, Tzveta Kassabova and Laura Quattrocchi came together to create this dialogue in the emerging theatre space at Andy, which provided a broad visual landscape that allowed for the exploration of multiple artistic platforms.  

Internationally recognized percussionist and composer Stéphane Garin and dancer/theatre director Thierry Escarpment joined them in this premier performance. Set design was created in collaboration with Vince Mountain.
