The local dancemakers featured in Houston Choreographers X6 run the gamut in style and experience. There's Kristen Frankiewicz, a dancer/choreographer with international performance credits under her belt; Laura Gutierrez, a native Houstonian currently on the adjunct faculty at the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts; Lydia Hance, the founder of multimedia dance company Frame Dance; Erin Reck, a no-holds-barred performance artist with 12 years logged in New York City; Sandra Organ Solis, a former Houston Ballet soloist and local artistic director; and jhon r. stronks, an independent choreographer and a company director for the Houston Met.
The diversity of the lineup has even the artists enthused. ''I don't have a clue as to what the other choreographers have prepared,'' says stronks. ''The freshness is going to be exhilarating.'' Hance, meanwhile, is eager to present her new work, which features ''three stunning dancers, a charged musical score [and] a live musician.''
See Houston Choreographers X6, part of the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center's 33rd Annual Dance Month celebration, at 8 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday. Kaplan Theatre, 5601 South Braeswood.
