Trained as dancers since childhood, Anna Thompson and Taylor Knight have been collaborating on multimedia experiences including movement, light, and sound in both live and recorded performances since they met at Point Park University. Currently based out of Wilkinsburg, they have performed locally, as well as in New York and Paris studying and exploring the possibilities of their craft. Taylor also began creating atmospheric and moody music under the name Light the Knight that he now develops with Anna. They are both contemporaries of past guests of The AP Collection, Mario Ashkar and The Moon Baby. It was incredibly exciting to sit down with these two artists who, while very well trained and experienced, are now moving into another phase of their career and developing a budding collaborative practice.
