City of Asylum/Pittsburgh hosts an informational meeting tonight with representatives of artists from the Czech Republic for a community-based artists residency and free performances this summer.
The Archa Theater and its All-Star Refjudzi band will be in residence at City of Asylum. It’s seeking local musicians, actors, dancers, other performers and volunteers to participate in creating and performing in “a musical/theatrical event based on stories from within Pittsburgh’s refugee communities.”
Archa is a leading Czech Republic theater company. The band, led by American musician Michael Romanyshyn, combines music of different styles and various cultural sources. See more on the group’s Vimeo channel.
Archa and the band will be in residency in June, with free performances planned on June 28 and 29. Here’s more about the project.
Tonight’s meeting is at 330 Sampsonia Way, on the North Side, at 6 p.m. Email Julie Tvaruzek at email@example.com if you can attend.
