Under the artistic direction of Peter Kope and Michele de la Reza, Attack Theatre has been making personal, accessible and collaborative dance-based performances with “ninja-like intensity” (Pittsburgh Tribune Review) for 18 years. They combine modern dance, original live music, multimedia and interdisciplinary art forms to present work in traditional and nontraditional spaces both nationally and internationally. They have collaborated with major regional theaters, NYC Broadway productions, museums, symphonies, operas and international dance companies, thereby presenting nearly 100 original works in theatrical and site specific settings.
Attack Theatre also conducts residencies in contemporary dance, creative movement and aesthetic education in universities, primary and secondary schools, arts festivals and community centers. The company’s outreach programs focus on demystifying the artistic process and building community. Attack Theatre also operates a rehearsal and performance studio that serves small arts groups and the neighboring community as, “an important training ground for the next generation” (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette).
