Point Park University Flash Mob! September 28, 2009 | Stabenau | More on General
Three hundred dancers. Three locations. A celebration of peace and solidarity as Pittsburgh prepares to…the world for the G20 Summit this week. Point Park University’s Conservatory of Performing Arts staged a flash mob peace demonstration on Monday, Sept. 19. Simultaneously at 1:15 p.m., 300 dancers hit the streets for a spontaneous dance performance to a medley of songs such as “America,” “All You Need is Love,” “We are Family,” and “Celebrate” in PPG Plaza, Oxford Plaza, and Steel Plaza in Downtown Pittsburgh. Kiesha Lalama-White, Point Park alumna and faculty member, directed and choreographed the performance which focused on unity and peace. As the student performers removed their overcoats to represent the shedding of stereotypes and labels, they revealed Point Park University/Colcom peace-sign t-shirts to symbolize that deep down inside we are really one person. Lalama-White’s creative team included executive producer Ronald Allan-Lindblom, assistant director Jason Coll, and assistant choreographers Jeremy Czarniak and Heather Kronk. The project was presented in partnership with Colcom Foundation. This kind of unique cultural contribution reflects the University’s Academic Village vision, a $244 million campus and neighborhood initiative. Through the Academic Village, Point Park is bringing more students to live Downtown, green spaces, a new student convocation center and a commitment to sustainable development in the region’s core.Read More
