TEDxPittsburgh - Kiesha Lalama-White and Andy Ostrowski - Chaos

An interdisciplinary movement, examination, exploration, and investigation of power
Dancers from the Point Park Conservancy of Performing Arts Dance Department collaborate with professional musicians, an interdisciplinary art maker, and lighting designer to create a work that provokes questions surrounding power and the chaotic state of our world.

As an educator, Kiesha is an Assistant Professor at Point Park University, Education Director for the Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera, and has taught master classes for Cirque Du Soleil and dance companies throughout the nation.

Lighting Director Andy Ostrowski has lighted the theatre world. Credits include productions throughout Europe and the United States. He has worked with every major, and most of the smaller, arts and theatre groups in Pittsburgh and is the recipient of the National Merit Award from the Kennedy Center and the 2011 Frankel Award for making a significant impact on Western Pennsylvania Arts.
