For four dizzying weeks in the fall, Pittsburgh will set the stage for international companies and artists premiering works never before seen in the United States. They will capture your imagination, challenge you to think BIG, and leave you seeing the world in an entirely new way. Theater, dance, music, performance, visual arts, the real and the surreal merge. Deep breath. Get ready. Everyone remembers their first.
