Co-presented with Dreams of Hope Queer Youth Arts

Each year, Dreams of Hope launches an original production created and performed by its theatriQ Youth Ensemble, developed in residence at KST’s Alloy Studios. The 2016 premiere, Webs, weaves storytelling from ancient Greece to Tumblr to explore how passive victims can grow into heroic authors of their own mythology. Two queer youths meet online, discuss Greek myths and the echoes of their own lives they find there. Neither content to be defined by stories from the past, they struggle to make a narrative that includes their whole selves, through a post, a story, a selfie, a song.

Made possible in part with generous support from Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse, The Warhol Museum, The Heinz Endowments, The MUKTI Fund, The McDonnell and O’Brien Foundation, the Allegheny Regional Asset District, the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the Alcoa Foundation, BNY Mellon, Alcoa, the Fine Foundation, PNC Charitable Trusts and Events by Chaundel.
