Murphy/Smith Dance Collective - Sound Project
Murphy/Smith Dance Collective, formed in 2011 by Pittsburgh-based choreographers Jamie Erin Murphy and Renee Danielle Smith, explores the relationship between sound and human instinct. Sound Project illuminates how our everyday life sounds around us create environment, a source of communication and even our general feeling of safety. So what can happen when our familiar soundscape becomes distorted or even disappears?

Tales of Hoffmann - Retold
Hoffmann is obsessed with three beautiful women—or is it one mercurial woman, split into three different personalities? The great story of E.T.A. Hoffmann's love life is retold in a new version incorporating some of the poet-composer’s own music. International star Robert Chafin (Covent Garden, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Wiener Staatsoper) plays Hoffmann.
