4:00pm – 6:00pm

KST’s Alloy Studios, Downstairs / 5530 Penn Ave

A conversation with dance artists and community builders who have supported and made space for radical Black aesthetics within systems of dance production and presentation in Pittsburgh and throughout the US. We will focus on recent and past programs, including the Urban Bush Women’s Choreographic Center Initiative, ACRE (Artists Co-creating Real Equity), Pittsburgh’s Point Park University Dance Program and the historic August Wilson Center Dance Ensemble, to explore holistic approaches to cultivating experimentation and commitment to the radical. Moderated by KST’s Executive Director, janera solomon, our conversation seeks to illuminate and learn from innovative models created by these groundbreaking artists and organizers.


  • Maria Bauman-Morales, Artistic Director, MBDance and Co-founder, ACRE (Artists Co-creating Real Equity)
