What is Performance and Time Arts?

A project of Contemporary Dance Theater, Performance and Time Arts (PTA) is Cincinnati’s longest-running performance art series showcasing new work in dance, music, theater, spoken-word and multi-media.

In the laboratory setting of the 1890s College Hill Town Hall, both seasoned and emerging artists are given the opportunity to share innovative work and experiments with Cincinnati audiences.

Cincinnati CityBeat says PTA “consistently brings together the city’s most eclectic and edgy batch of performing arts.” 


PTA: Performance and Time Arts, November 2014 is produced by Shirley Maul


Performance and Time Arts returns for its first show of the 2014-15 season at 8:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, November 21-22 at the College Hill Town Hall, 1805 Larch Avenue in Cincinnati (45224). The p.t.a. series continues its long history of presenting experimental, unconventional, and neglected performance work from a variety of disciplines.

Performances scheduled for this show are:

  • Music and Dance by Kazuaki Shiota & Karen Wissel
  • Dance by Steve Kreimer & Gloria Esenwein
  • Poetry by Valerie Chronis Bickett
  • Solo Performance Piece by Eileen Tull
  • Music & Theater by Bet Stewart
  • Theater by John Ray
 Advanced tickets available through Thursday, Nov 20

The November Performance and Time Arts show will feature works by many favorite PTA performers.

Kazuaki Shiota and Karen Wissel will create and perform in an interactive, structured, improvisation piece with 3 composers and 2 dancers.

Steve Kreimer and Glora Esenwin have danced together on many dance floors in the past, but this is the first time they have collaborated choreographically.

Valerie Chronis Bickett has been writing and teaching writing all of her life.  She will share some of her writings in a poetry reading.

Eileen Tull will perform a solo theater work she created that explores our increasing obsession with technology and with our own images.

Bet Stewart performs a musical and non-musical exploration of why some things do make sense, and others don’t seem to make as much sense.

John Ray is a playwright based in Cincinnati. His most recent plays were featured in the past 3 Cincinnati Fringe Festivals. Radio Gomorrah is his current project and is the first of an on going series.work that has been featured in both the 2013 and 2014 Cincinnati Fringe Festivals.

This will be an opportunity to see a wide range of unique and creative artists at a very affordable price, and help contribute to the continuation of alternative arts in Cincinnati.

Save these dates for future PTA shows in 2015:  Feb 20 & 21, and April 17 &18
