Jameelah Platt & Lost Culture Dance Crew, Freshworks Residency Presentation
November 1, 2019 | 8:00pm
KST’s Alloy Studios
5530 Penn Ave
Visual artist Jameelah Platt teams with the Lost Culture Dance Crew to combine dance, film, photography, and painting into a visual language that illustrates underrepresented, misrepresented and concealed narratives. Jameelah Platt is a painter, collage artist, and admirer of vast spaces of flora, working with themes of nostalgia and comfort to provide viewers with a nurturing and reflective experience that provokes introspection. Lost Culture is an all-styles dance crew that brings back the lost culture of Pittsburgh.
This in-progress performance is part of KST’s Freshworks Residency, program which provides artists with space, resources, and support to explore new ideas and launch new projects. Presented in conjunction with Unblurred: First Fridays on Penn, sponsored by the Penn Avenue Arts Initiative, a joint program of the Bloomfield Garfield Corporation.
