Performance art is definitely in in Houston this week. First of all, performance art night returns to notsuoH tonight, April 26, from 9pm-12am. It will feature performances by Jennifer Free, Raiska & Julia, Stoo GoGo, Andrew DiMatteo, Elise Weber and Gilbert Baca, Evan McCarley, Jeremiah Carroll, Tristan Tucker, Brittani Broussard, Michael Clemmons, and Luany Maiato.
Tomorrow night from 5-6pm, Stephanie Cavazos and Kandise Ponce will finish up a series called Per Form: Meaning in Action by UH’s Performance Art & Social Activism class at the University’s Third Space.
On April 29 and 30, Lawndale Art Center will present (or re-present) two nights of a Speakeasy series, a “new program initiative that re-envisions Lawndale’s “Speakeasy” series that took place from 1993-2002. This series will cast a reflexive eye on Lawndale’s historical relationship to live music and performance, as well as the exploration of issues in contemporary art.” Friday evening, from 7-9pm, will feature David Dove/Jawwaad Taylor & Charalambides, Saturday evening will feature Helen Money & Soldier Kane.
As part of CounterCurrent 2016 (which presented tons of performance art in its experimental arts festival earlier this month), Remote Houston is “a participatory pedestrian-based live theatre experience where groups of 50 individuals meet and discover the city of Houston from a new remote perspective. Participants will be lead on a journey across the city that alters perceptions of familiar landscapes, unifies the group and conjures up personal memories.” There are still six performances left and tickets are available through the Alley Theatre.
A correction-Per Form: Meaning in Action is not finished! While Kandise and Stephanie performed today (it was so much fun!), the closing reception, featuring Layla Jones, will be held on Friday, April 29th, at 7pm in Third Space. We hope to see you there!
