Under the artistic direction of Peter Kope and Michele de la Reza, Attack Theatre has been delivering remarkable dance-based performances with “ninja-like intensity” (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review) since 1994. The troup combines modern dance with original live music, multimedia and interdisciplinary art forms to present their work in traditional as well as nontraditional spaces, nationally and internationally. It has collaborated with major regional theaters, operas and international dance companies, reaching tens of thousands of people with personal, accessible and collaborative performances in traditional and non-traditional spaces throughout Pittsburgh, United States and the world. Its annual fundraiser, The Dirty Ball, is one of the most talked-about events of year.
