FrenetiCore Dance: The Rite of Summer and Film Noir

Choreographer Rebecca French, costume designer Ashley Horn and I were interviewed by Houston Public Media about our upcoming performance of The Rite of Summer. The video turned out really nice! There are also details about the second piece on the program, Film Noir, FrenetiCore Dance's collaboration with Houston songwriter Andrew Karnavas.

The show is just one week away and I think its only now just hitting me that we're presenting this work at the Cullen Theater. Wow. It's going to look and sound amazing. Hope you can come out. See below for details about the performance.

FrenetiCore Dance is excited to announce that it will revive its 2013 show, The Rite of Summer, for the Wortham Center’s Cullen Theater stage on August 1, 2015. Artistic Director Rebecca French’s The Rite of Summer was originally created to commemorate the centennial of Stravinsky’s 1913 masterpiece, The Rite of Spring. Whereas the original Nijinsky ballet told the story of a primitive human sacrifice ritual, French’s choreography is a celebration of life, nature, and the exuberance of a bright summer day.

Date: August 1, 2015
Time: 8 p.m.
Location: Cullen Theater, Wortham Center, 501 Texas Avenue
Tickets: $16 - $50
