Event Details

Fresh Works is KST’s month-long creative learning program for Pittsburgh-based artists. The program provides artists with production support, lighting and sound design, and 80 hours at The Alloy Studios to research, explore, play, and finally share a work-in-progress performance. Fresh Works debuted in 2013 and, so far, this residency incubator has benefited seven lead artists.


This month we welcome Mark Conway Thompson for a new movement theater performance called Kimono (working title). Kimono explores the theme of social justice through the experience of victims, the evil of predation, and the culpability of predators. With the help of a woman who appears on his doorsteps, a traumatized man, an artist, reconstituted his life through the transformational work of creating beautiful kimonos. The result is that together they discover the will and the courage to do that remaining thing that should be done - to go and call out, expose and, symbolically drive back the predator.

Mark Conway Thompson has performed in Europe, South America, and throughout the U.S., including several shows with Quantum Theatre in Pittsburgh. In addition to dance, Mark has performed as a mime at Smithsonian Institute and the Centre Pompidou in Paris, and as an actor in shows including Cinderella, King Lear, and A Soldier’s Tale, among others. He has also appeared in numerous television shows and film including True Detective and Stuck With Each Other.
