About Ángel Lartigue:
Ángel Lartigue is an artist born and raised in Houston TX. Recently I've been accepted to take part of the residency, SymbioticA, at the University of Western Australia in Perth. I am raising money for my travel expenses, living costs and residency bench fees for SymbioticA. The residency asks for a three month minimum stay but planning to stay at least a full six months, for the 2019 semester starting August. Founded by two bioartists, Oron Catts and Ionat Zurr, the residency is the first of its kind, an experimental artistic laboratory where researchers from all over the world create space, ask questions and critically engage with the life sciences. This residency will greatly benefit my current artistic projects and will be a stepping stone into furthering my career. Learn more about Ángel Lartigue HERE.

CULTURED COCKTAILS BENEFITING ETERNAL 30


Please join us for drinks and conversation at Boheme Cafe & Wine Bar on Thursday, May 23rd, when a portion of the proceeds from all drink sales during the 5:00PM -8:00PM happy hour will go to support Eternal 30. So enjoy a drink or two, meet the Eternal 30 team, and take-in Boheme's bohemian atmosphere! The proceeds from the evening will support Eternal 30 so don't be shy, raise a glass (or three) while raising funds for Eternal 30.


About Eternal 30:

Internal/Eternal is the collaborative effort of Rachel Orosco and Tom Carter. Together we design environments in which performers and artists (often including ourselves) dismantle the imaginary barriers between music, art, and performance in order to inspire a sense of community and possibility. 

Eternal 30 is an installation combining light, music, and collaborative performances that will endure for 30 days in a non-traditional venue to emphasize the short-lived nature of independent creative spaces in the face of Houston’s competitive real estate market. 

The installation will include multimedia projections by Rachel Orosco and improvisational and electronic music by guitarist Tom Carter that will envelop the viewers and listeners in an immersive environment punctuated by intermittent interventions of dance, performance, music, poetry, and other forms of expression. 

The venue for the installation is yet to be announced, but we're investigating spaces in central Houston locations that will allow access both by foot and public transportation. Our target months are May or September, although dates are flexible depending on the final venue. Other collaborators in the project will include internationally-known multimedia artists, musicians, filmmakers, and performers. Eternal 30 is partially funded by a generous Individual Artist Grant from the Mayor's Office of Cultural Affairs and the Houston Arts Alliance.

Brotherhood: In Conversation on Contemporary Black Dance

at Mystic Lyon

The
Pilot Dance Project and Mystic Lyon are pleased to present a
discussion on contemporary black dance with an intimate reception to
follow for Brooklyn-based artists Brother(hood) Dance. This event
will take place on Saturday, April 13 at 7pm at Mystic Lyon in the
historic Fifth Ward at 5007 Lyons Avenue, Houston, TX 77020.


From
artist Orlando Zane Hunter Jr:
The
piece that we will be collaborating on is a work that I’m writing
as a short story and bringing it into a live movement experience. We
like to work with a concept we are calling Afro-neo narratives. This
is a understanding we are learning and experiencing. Having the
control to tell the stories of past present and future with a focus
on healing. Having the liberty of black imaginative space to tie time
and space using focused energy to tell stories and mythologies that
someone may never heard of or has, has an affect on viewer who never
get to see themselves in a particular light. I’m excited to share
with the Houston community.


Conversation
with the Artists:

Date/Time:
April 13, 7-9pm

Location:
Mystic Lyon, 5007 Lyons Avenue, Houston, TX 77020

Upcoming Performance:

The
Pilot Dance Project continues its spring season with a special
collaboration with Brooklyn-based artists Brother(hood) Dance. This
critically acclaimed collective will set a new evening-length work on
the Pilot Dance Project. Hawa (The Ride) will make its world
premiere at Midtown Arts and Theater Center Houston (MATCH). This
project is made possible by a City's Initiative grant from the City
of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance.


Date:
April 19 - 21, 2019

Performance
Time: 8pm and 5pm (on April 21 only)

Location:
Midtown Arts and Theater Center Houston, Matchbox One

Tickets:
$15 presale; $20 at-the-door

Hawa
(The Ride)
is
a contemporary myth, embodied in the characters of two horsemen,
“Jacko” and “Cavalier Spirit.” Referencing West African
cosmologies and urban cowboy practices the work takes up Black
masculinity and the politics of adornment as source material for a
creative fashioning of the future self. Through the use of short
story and multimedia, this is an Afro-neo narrative of resilience,
discovery, and transformation.


Brother(hood)
Dance!

is an interdisciplinary duo that seeks to inform its audiences on the
socio-political and environmental injustices from a global
perspective, bringing clarity to the same-gender-loving
African-American experience in the 21st century. Brother(hood)
Dance! was formed in April 2014 as a duo that research, create and
perform dances of freedom by Orlando Zane Hunter, Jr. and Ricarrdo
Valentine. They have performed their works at FiveMyles, Center for
Performance Research, B.A.A.D! (Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance),
VCU-The Grace Street Theater, DraftWork at St. Marks Church, JACK,
Movement Research at Judson Church, Colby College, Denmark Arts
Center and other venues.
