What makes SWAN Day Pittsburgh 2012 unique is the fact that every performance and work of art will be a world premiere inspired by interviews with women from all across Pennsylvania. No Name Players traveled across the state filming interviews with women of all ages and all backgrounds. This footage was then given to the participating artists and those artists used that footage as inspiration for new works of theatre, dance, music, and poetry.  It is a wonderfully creative way to celebrate the voices and visions of the women of Pennsylvania.  This year’s event will even include an outdoor fire dance performance!
