Water, light and relationships: simple yet bountiful topics that are perfect for young artists to use as themes, while leaving plenty of room for creativity. Employing a variety of styles and techniques, students from the University of Houstons School of Theatre & Dance explore these and others in todays Apply Precision-Rinse. Repeat. The program demonstrates their breadth as both performers and choreographers.
About a dozen students will present new works, including Alex Abarcas A Story About Us, about the beginnings and ends of relationships. In another piece, Allison Chavezs urban/contemporary Aqueous, four dancers use cups of water as props, and Mechelle Flemmings Enclosure experiments with different light sources. Preview the young dancers who are certain to be at the center of Houstons future dance scene at 2 p.m. today and Saturday. Wortham Theater, University of Houston Central Campus, 4800 Calhoun.
