Rebecca French Performance: Dancing a Tetrapod In collaboration with Fumi Ishino’s Rowing a Tetrapod
Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2018 – Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2018
07:00 PM – 08:00 PM
Houston Center for Photography is pleased to present Dancing a Tetrapod, created by award-winning queer dance choreographer, Rebecca French. In response to Fumi Ishino’s exhibition, Rowing a Tetrapod, dancers will combine elements of traditional Japanese Butoh dance with American dance aesthetics in order to echo Ishino’s staccato shifts and disorienting imagery about moving between cultures. The dancers aim to simultaneously disperse and unite the audience in unfamiliarity, physically guiding viewers with their movements within the gallery space. The distinct style in which the dancers perform is further enhanced with elaborate costume design and the use of electronic and orchestral sounds. The accompanying music, ambient yet tonal with a perceptible rhythm at times, will propel and accentuate the dancer’s movement.
