Shady Side Academy will bring a “percusical” — a fusion of acting, singing, percussive dance and multimedia — to stage on Nov. 18 with dance group SOLE Defined.

The group transforms their bodies into human drums to create a free-flowing conversation through music and movement, said Jen Roupe, director of communications.

SOLE Defined will perform its New Orleans-inspired show, “ZAZ: The Big Easy.”

The group will perform at 7:30 p.m. at the Hillman Center for Performing Arts on the senior school campus, 423 Fox Chapel Road, Fox Chapel. Tickets cost $30 for adults, $24 for senior citizens and $16 for children age 18 and younger.

They can be purchased online at or by phone at 412-968-3040.

Remaining shows in the 2017-2018 Hillman Performing Arts series include a capella group “Six Appeal” in February and “PUSH Physical Theatre” in March.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
