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?


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.



Contemporary dance performance 

Sept 6th at 8pm & Sept 8th at 4pm

Tix: $15 - buy online  here or at door

GIANTS, a work facilitated by Bailey Allshouse, is a culmination of a 4 month process with dancers; Rachel Andes, Britney Birr, and Shannon White. The work supplies opportunity for discovering delicacy in both structure and bodily form, while it's construct is a rotating landscape that depicts different worlds of primitivity. The work then serves as a playscape for the artists to explore their biggest, strongest, fastest, as well as quietest selves.

"Vision for the End of The World"

by Scott Crandall 


"Visions for the End of the World" begins with a showman who welcomes the audience to the pageant he is about to present: a doomsday prophet's series of apocalyptical visions. These visions’ performances range from energetic dance routines to desperate prayer to sea shanties and shipwrecks, each tied together with poetic dialogue, vigorous physicality, and delicately crafted stage images. Though dark and strange in moments, the 40 minute piece is accessible and searching: an open invitation to look toward the future honestly, empathetically, gratefully.


Scott Crandall is a performance artist, musician, and gardener in the Detroit area. After earning an AA in Theater from Lansing Community College and a BFA in Theater Direction from the University of Michigan, he apprenticed with Detroit performance company The Hinterlands, and now incorporates elements of their movement training as a central part of his creative practice. Crandall also performs with Maddy Rager as the dance/performance art duo “Thank You So Much For Coming,” looking for a nexus between absurdity, research, and politics to craft bizarre, thoughtful, and often funny works.

Live Coal Gallery presents
Yvette Rock and Darius Baber

Opening Reception June 28,  6pm - 9pm

with program at 7pm

Join us on June 28, 2019 from 6pm-9pm for an opening reception featuring recent works by Live Coal Collective members Darius Baber & Yvette Rock. Evening includes performance by Yvette Rock at 7pm.

Baber and Rock both share a passion for life - whether human life or that found in nature. Baber states, "In my most resent series of work I have been exploring light, color and form. While taking bike rides during the sunset I have found inspiration in the way natural light paints itself over the branches, creating captivating shades of green and dynamic shadows that travel throughout the branches. By using this information, I have found an immense peace when creating beautiful compositions from the most tender and warm glimpses of the streets in Detroit and Hamtramack."

Cleopatra Boy by A HOST OF PEOPLE 


September 13-28  - Thursday - Saturday at 8PM

*Pay-what-you-will Tuesday, September 24

Tix here or at door

Conceived and directed by Sherrine Azab and Jake Hooker.


Cleopatra Boy brings to light how women (and other non-straight/white/male) leaders’ histories are re-written, maligned, or erased. The iconic Egyptian pharaoh’s historic, mythic, and fictional representations across time inspired our ensemble to create a performance that speaks to the present moment. A theatrical thought experiment that is part pageant, part courtroom drama; our audience will shape-shift from spectators, to community members, to witnesses as we collectively address the injustice of losing control of our own narratives in order to rethink and remake history.

Parking: Park in fenced lot on Parkside and Fenkell or on Fenkell St. Avoid parking in front of residents homes on Parkside.

Welcome to a collage of the sound, sight, taste, feel, and scent of Detroiters. From all walks of life...This is the Detroit is Different Festival. Even if you are a visitor of Detroit, are from Detroit, or live in Detroit, a spectrum of culture is alive and thriving under your nose. This Festival is a cultural event that welcomes Detroit enthusiasts who are interested in, listen to, and create the array of podcasts associated with the Detroit is Different Network. 

The events associated with the Festival will be a rallying moment for many walks of life. The ages, races, tastes, and sensibilities of Detroit enthusiasts will gather around music, food, discussions, art, and dance. This event will close with a "think tank" to explore the standard of how culture is distributed, received, and provided in Metro-Detroit.
