Dance Month: Choreographers x6
Hello Frame Fans!!
Lydia here, and I feel like it’s been so long since I’ve updated you on the dancemaking around here. You’ve been getting some great MFA Monday posts, and the helpful Eat Well Wednesday articles, and some fab Links We Like. But now it’s time to return to the reason we are all here: dance. Well, maybe that’s hyperbole. It may be the reason most of us are here.
So, since October we’ve been slowly and carefully created a brand new piece called The Long Line. It’s a trio of dancers including Jacquelyne Boe, Ashley Horn, and Laura Gutierrez. Our composition competition winner Charles Halka has created a brand new piece for solo violin. We are beyond thrilled to work with the musician in rehearsal tomorrow. Are you in the Houston area? Come peek in on a run through on Thursday at Hope Stone from 11:15-12:15. I do have a little treat for you. I have a video clip from weeks ago. So I can’t say it’s the most up to date version (at all) but it gives a little flavor of the piece we’re making. Also this is when only about 3 minutes of the music had been recorded, so the music is the first few minutes of the piece on loop. The show will be at the Kaplan Theater at the ERJCC Houston on January 26 and 27. Tickets are sold through the ERJCC.
