, the newest kids on the Houston dance block, are inviting audience members to become part of the performance during their two-night run at Nicole Longnecker Gallery. “It won’t be sit-down, which is really interesting,” says Nicole Longnecker, gallery owner. “The audience becomes part of the show; it’s much more interactive. People will be incredibly close to the dancers.” Roberta Paixão Cortes (director, choreographer, dancer) will be joined by Thomas Helton (composer, bassist), Lindsey McGill (associate director, choreographer, dancer) and Seth Paynter (composer, musician) as they perform in front of the ethereal, nature-inspired installation by Japanese-artist Harumi Shimazu. Pro tip: These events tend to sell out, so reserve your tickets now.
7 p.m. Thursday and July 14. 2625 Colquitt. For information, call 346-800-2780 or visit longneckergallery.com
