Curated by DSH founder Christina Giannelli, the program includes an unusual video snippet from another DSH contributor, Toni Leago Valle. Im showing a new piece, which is one section out of a new work that Ill be premiering in May called Cocoon, says Valle. Its a video, because it was done with a pregnant woman who was ready to deliver, so it was either a videotape or nothing at all. Its my first dance video. She also contributes Drowning, a solo excerpt from Baptism, which chronicles a womans downward spiral.
Valle says the group show is a way for dance artists to make some easy waves in a community thats expanding. Theres definitely a need for more places to show peoples work, she says. There are new choreographers emerging, and this is a venue where they can show a piece and not be overwhelmed with the burden of producing a whole show. 7:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday. 1117 East Freeway. For information, call 713-223-8346 or visit www.diverseworks.org. $5 to $10.
