Associate Episode 2, presented by Real/Time InterventionsWednesday, August 5, 2020 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Real/Time will host another swim in the subconscious with Episode 2 of the new crowdsourced creative experience, ASSOCIATE. Featuring four award-winning artists, three of whom will use free association to mine their subconscious in real time, with help from the online audience. Then the fourth artist will return with a work inspired by this vibrant pile of imagery and associations. Equal parts talk show, game show, happening and salon, ASSOCIATE brings artists and audience together in the process of creation, in real time.
Streamed on The Show Must Go On(line) Pittsburgh channel. (run-time 60 minutes)
We’ll showcase works from each artist, exploring the role that the subconscious had in its creation. And finally, the last of the four associators will appear: they will have been behind the scenes creating a brand-new piece in real time using the collective associations from early in the show. At the end of the hour, this Prime Associator will unveil their original work, created for and with YOU!
ASSOCIATE Episode 2’s “associators” include Pittsburgh’s TJ Young, playwright; jazz musician and Pitt professor Dr. Aaron Johnson; artist/ illustrator Marcel L. Walker; and interdisciplinary theater artist Zell Miller III, live from Austin, TX!
Be part of the making. Join the association.
Real/Time Interventions is the creative partnership of playwright Molly Rice and director/producer Rusty Thelin. Real/Time Interventions creates theatrical events and public experiences that depend upon the immediate nature of live and real-time art: events that come to life when people come together. We seek to generate human connection, curiosity and wonder with our work, and to help audiences re-see their surroundings in new and unexpected ways. R/TI creates narrative art in rich conversation with a broad range of collaborators, from theater artists to scientists to rock bands to social workers to our neighbors down the street. We seek to create small, vibrant “companies” with every new project, peopled by individuals from diverse walks of life and realms of experience who are bound by the creative impulse driving each piece, or their stake in the story we are telling together.
