‘s (a tale of possession)
3400 Main St, Houston, TX 77002
Hope Stone Dance’s ‘s (a tale of possession) addresses the timeless topic of ownership, questioning “what do we really own?” Mine, ours, yours. Maybe a line from “Fight Club” is the answer – “The things you own end up owning you.”
10 dancers. 2,000 shoe boxes. 7 bird cages. A few teacups and finger sandwiches. A pedestal. And shoes. Lots of them.
‘s (a tale of possession) was created by Jane Weiner in 2004 during a DiverseWorks’ residency and restaged in 2006 at the Wortham Center’s Cullen Theater. Thirteen years later, time hasn’t changed our possessive natures – whether its shoes or land or relationships.
With a sound score by Firat Ozsoy mixing Klezmer, David Byrne, Steve Reich and the sounds of grocery store self-checkout machines, lighting by Tiffany Schrepferman and set design by David Graeve, be ready for a sensory-striking evening.
This performance is supported in part by Dance Source Houston's Production Grant program.
