The Pillow Project is an evolving experiment in improvisational Freejazz movement… a passionate collaboration of visual-composers, motion-conductors and avant-garde performing artists for igniting new ideas in spontaneous expression, both in Pittsburgh and internationally. The Pillow Project creates multimedia installations, performances and public happenings though a philosophy of using "jazz" as a verb.

Our jazz is a visual music played with the motion of a highly articulate, yet completely organic physicality... Original ideas in jazz and performance that are reactions to the over-run commercialism, technical and presentation constraints of contemporary Western dance... A new way to challenge the common perceptions of what is dance, who is a dancer and where dance is found in the zeitgeist.
