'Persistence of Memory' by T.T.C. Dance

TCC Dance

Persistence of Memory takes its audience on a journey between the real and the surreal, where imagination is the only limitation of beauty. Ting-Ting Chang has conceptualized a convergence of dance and painting, focusing on the idea of moving sculptures and reexamining Salvador Dali's drawers and Sigmund Freud's unconscious mind. The piece won the Grand Prize award in the 2016 McCallum Theatre Choreography Festival.


About the Artistic Director and Choreographer

Ting-Ting Chang is a dancer, choreographer, and scholar born in Taiwan. An international choreographer in residence at American Dance Festival, she is a two-time winner of the McCallum Theatre's Choreography Festival and the Silver Award of China's 8th Lotus Cup. Her choreography was sponsored by Taiwan's Ministry of Culture and performed in the 2016 Kuala Lumpur International Arts Festival (Malaysia), the 3rd Silk Road International Arts Festival, the 2016 Shanghai Dance Stage International Festival, the 2015 Guangdong Dance Festival (China), the 2015 Asia Pacific Dance Bridge in Esplanade (Singapore), the 2015 Spotlight Project at University of Surrey (U.K.), and the 2013 Festival d'Avignon Off (France). 

About T.T.C. Dance

T.T.C. Dance was established in the autumn of 2012 in an effort to return to the essence of dance, focusing on the body and reimagining its possibilities. Since then, the company has channeled this energy in reinventing the visual aspect of the performing art. By collaborating with artists from various fields and experimenting with different concepts, they continue to make positive strides towards a dynamic visual spectacle that is equally entertaining and inspiring.

Sacred Music Sacred Dance for World Healing

Sacred Dance Tibet

Following the last two years’ sold-out programs at Asia Society, the famed multiphonic singers of Tibet’s Drepung Loseling Monastery return to perform Sacred Music Sacred Dance for World Healing on Saturday, August 18. Their sellout performances in Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center received national acclaim, and were praised as “remarkable” by The New York Times and “a universal expression of the human subconscious” by The Washington Post

Robed in magnificent costumes and playing traditional Tibetan instruments, the Drepung Loseling monks will present ancient temple music and dance. The Loseling monks are particularly renowned for their multiphonic chanting known as zokkay (complete chord). Each of the main chantmasters simultaneously intones three notes, thus each individually creating a complete chord. They also utilize traditional instruments, such as 10-foot-long dung chen horns, drums, bells, cymbals, and gyaling trumpets. Rich brocade costumes and masked dances, such as the Dance of the Sacred Snow Lion, add to the splendor.

About the Performances

For the first time at Asia Society, the monks will perform an afternoon matinee as well as an evening full-length program.

Afternoon Matinee (2-2:45 p.m.)

This shorter performance, appropriate for families, will feature a selection of the full-length program's music and dance.

Evening Program (7-8:30 p.m.)

This full-length performance has sold out the past two years.

Park-SmART Precinct One - Arts & Culture Forum

Park-SmART Precinct One Arts & Culture Forum, an evening of conversation and drinks to celebrate the role of artists and the arts in creating compelling, welcoming, beautiful parks and open space for all.

Commissioner Rodney Ellis and Public Art and Design Director Reginald Adams from Harris County Precinct One invite you to:

Park-SmART Precinct One Arts & Culture Forum, an evening of conversation and drinks to celebrate the role of artists and the arts in creating compelling, welcoming, beautiful parks and open space for all. 

Park-SmART Precinct One is part of a larger effort, Park-Smart Precinct One, through which the Precinct is partnering with The Trust for Public Land, Houston Parks Board, and Asakura Robinson on an ambitious plan to build community resilience by increasing equitable access to parks and trails. 

Arts and cultural engagement are essential to creating parks and greenways that are truly accessible and welcoming—parks and greenways that reflect the histories, identities, and aspirations of local residents. We want artists to be active voices in the shaping the plan and in helping us determine how funding, partnerships, and programming can help make art a core asset in Precinct One’s parks. 

As members of our vibrant local arts community, we hope that you will come share your ideas as you enjoy a drink on us!

As part of this event we will be asking:
• What role can artists play in increasing equity and community resilience in Precinct One?
• What kinds of parks-based arts and cultural programming and engagement are already happening locally?
• What are the specific places and contexts, in parks and the public realm, where can artists contribute more?
• What can the Precinct do to create more opportunities for artists to share their ideas and work in parks and open space?

Please spread the word and we hope to see you there!
