CounterCurrent, the annual performance festival organized by University of Houston’s Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts, has just announced the lineup for its 2018 program, which will run April 10-15, 2018 in Houston.

Like past years, the 2018 festival includes Ten Tiny Dances, a program featuring ten short dances on a 4’x4′ stage that this year will focus on the theme of color. Other highlights for this year’s festival include various community interventions by Mitchell Center artists-in-residence The Yes Men, a new site-specific work by Houston and New York-based choreographer Laura Gutierrez, a durational performance of Selina Thompson’s Race Cards work, and a film profiling Okwui Okpokwasili.

To present its programming this year, the Mitchell Center is partnering with other Houston-based organizations, including the Center for Energy & Environmental Research in the Human Sciences + the Humanities Research Center at Rice University; DiverseWorks; Project Row Houses; the Orange Show Center for Visionary Art; Aurora Picture Show; and the Transart Foundation for Art and Anthropology.

Free tickets for CounterCurrent, along with a full festival schedule, will be available on March 19. For more, go here.
