Thursday Morning Advanced Modern Dance

Class runs Thursdays Jan 17 - Mar 21, 2019

The focus of each class is to use a hybrid of forms to help dancers build a solid and expressive technique through a clear articulation and warm-up progression as well as the confidence in their fierce individuality, interactive intelligence, instinct, emotion, and distinctiveness. The dancer is asked to use the class as a place of experimentation, play, exploration, and development of a natural and integrated body configuration and a free-flowing style of movement.

's (a tale of possession)

's (a tale of possession)

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.

Honey, I'm Home

Performances at 12 noon, 2:00pm & 4:00pm

Hope Stone Dance presents Honey, I’m Home, a site-specific performance inspired by Ripple, an immersive sculpture created on the grounds of Cherryhurst House, a bungalow in Montrose, by recent artist in residence Havel Ruck Projects. Featuring guest artists Jacquelyn Long and Natalie Varnum (appearing courtesy of Houston Ballet) along with the men of HSD, Honey, I’m Home explores domestic life in a home where the walls, floors and ceilings are exposed to the outside world – and neighbors.

Each intimate audience is greeted by the resident "family" and invited into their domestic bliss for a little Sunday tea, some tidying and a peek into the life of a family unprotected from the elements, with imperfections showing.

Also appearing is Bonnie Collins, former HSD company member.

NOTE: Honey, I'm Home performance travels through the house sculpture. Please wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to stand for the duration of the performance as there is no seating.
There is no designated parking but street parking is readily available in the vicinity.
