Pitcher’s current research and practice approaches movement as system design. She considers patters, relationships, responsivity, changeability, and radical openness through interdisciplinary, audience inclusive performance projects. She is a recipient of a 2015 ArtPrize Seed Grant and will be presenting a new iteration of her work, Breakwall, in the fall. Workshops present a radical approach to technique that affirms availability, recovery, range, and discovery.
Pitcher’s work has been presented in Moscow, Canada, and throughout the USA, including notable venues Philly Fringe Festival, Ingenuity Festival, Chicago Cultural Center, Hyde Park Arts Center, Columbus Movement Movement, and Cleveland Playhouse. She is an adjunct faculty in the Dance Division of Kent State University and has presented through ACDA, Ohio Dance Festival, College Art Association, and other organizations.
Capoeira is a clever and deceptive Brazilian martial art. Classes are all levels with every participant challenged past their expectations. Find empowerment, build strength, and test endurance while learning the basic history and traditions.
