Origins

Group Acorde premieres a full collection of collaboartions between contemporary dance, visual art and live jazz music

Group Acorde's full-evening production of Origins presents original works reflecting collaborations between contemporary dance choreography, live jazz music, and visual art. Origins brings
together artists from different roots, backgrounds, communities and art
mediums into a space where the origin of the work is the same: a
willingness for each voice to be heard and the possibilities that arise
when artists learn from each other about different art mediums than the
ones they are used to working with. Group Acorde's innovative creative
process invites each artist involved to communicate, share and exchange
ideas with each other even when not in their own art medium.

Origins will
include choreography by Jennifer Mabus, Roberta Paixao Cortes, and
Lindsey McGill; compositions by Andrew Leinhard, Thomas Helton and Seth
Paynter; and a set and installation by visual artist Andre Amaral.  Each
of these artists has dedicated many years to developing their art forms
in Houston and this performance reflects the diverse artistic culture
of our community.

This project is funded in part by the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance.
