Today I’m am finalizing the program info, the program order and production notes for the Fieldwork Showcase on Nov. 7 at 7pm for $7 at Barnevelder Movement Arts Complex in Downtown Houston. This is going to be a rich, diverse showcase of artists. We have a poet, a doll maker, three choreographers, two playwrights and one short story author. Beautiful work that has been developing through the Fieldwork process over the past 10 weeks. What I love so much about the showcase is that it shows works in progress as well as finished works. Audiences rarely get glimpses mid-process, but that’s really what I’m all about: bringing the audience into the world of creation.
One of the writers in the group many of you may already be familiar with is Diana Weeks. We collaborated in the creation of “Dancing Diana” where Frame Dance Productions danced to three of her witty and humorous short stories that were performed in the Houston Fringe Festival in Aug. 2009 as well as in Danceplorations last spring. There is also another writer in this group that I am in the beginning stages of collaborating with for “Mortar Sylphs Wrote” which is the title of our upcoming evening-length show, the culmination of the Hope Werks residency. She wrote a poem that will be a part of the new work. MMmmmmmm collaboration…
I strongly urge you to see this showcase. It does contain some more adult themes, so just a heads up for the little art-goers out there.
And I also encourage you to check out Fieldwork if you are an artist (undercover or not) or if you have a friend you think would benefit from this work/feedback group.
