Live experimental music and stunning visuals set the scene for sym, a deeply atmospheric dance and sound experience inspired by “Fledgeling,” a novel by African American Sci-Fi writer Octavia Butler. In collaboration with acclaimed Visual Artist Barbara Weissberger and Musicians Sadie Powers & Bonnie Jones, STAYCEE PEARL dance project & Soy Sos explore Butler’s mysterious universe of vampires and humans to examine symbiosis, gender identity and race as it relates to contemporary culture.
sym was commissioned by the Kelly-Strayhorn Theater, and made possible by the generous support of The National Endowments for the Arts, The Pittsburgh Foundation, The Heinz Endowments, Opportunity Fund, & the Lift Grant.
