Jane Weiner’s acclaimed Hope Stone Dance Company premieres her newest work, la vie à pleines dents, with live music performed by Mercury Baroque, one of the nation’s leading period instrument orchestras. Also joining in this magical evening is the award-winning Houston Boychoir, under the direction of Carole Nelson. Hope Stone Dance overtakes a 10,000 square-foot raw space in downtown’s Houston Pavilions, making this the “pop-up art” performance of 2012 you won’t want to miss!
Houston Boychoir teams with Hope Stone Dance & Mercury Baroque Orchestra for a week of new dance set to timeless music. Listen to Bach’s Goldberg Variations played on period instruments by the incomparable Mercury Baroque Orchestra and ephemeral Houston Boychoir in a most unusal evening of Dance.
La vie à pleines dents (To bite life with all of one’s teeth) examines near-death experiences of terminally ill patients and death row inmates, giving new meaning to the cliché of “live each day like it’s your last.” Hope Stone dances amidst the music of Mercury Baroque and the award-winning Houston Boychoir.
