Including MR. OWL dance party on Fri Sept 13th after Christina’s Q&A
Thurs Sept 12th & Fri Sept 13th, 8pm @ Kelly Strayhorn Theater
After 10 years of relative quiet and minimal artistic activity, Christina Springer returns to the Pittsburgh arts scene as both a presenter and performer. This multi-media performance incorporates text, sound, image and movement to portray the battle between the artist and the mother. The show particularly examines identity as it relates to raising a Black man.
In 2002, Springer stepped off the Pittsburgh arts community stage to raise her son. She and Christiane Leach had been running a non-profit arts organization, Sun Crumbs which produced over 50 programs annually.
More information about Springer is on her website: www.christinaspringer.com. Her 1999 CD, “In The Image Of Angels” has sold over 800 copies and is available for free download at www.soundcloud.com/christina-springer. You’ll also find teasers and outtakes for “She Diva Died & Come Again.”
