Ceremony

Ceremony is "very abstract and ambiguous," says Horse Head Theatre Artistic Director Kevin Holden. "I don't envy the task that you have to write a summary of it." We'll try. Horse Head, Houston's latest theater troupe, begins each run with a cocktail reception/paganish ritual dance party. The event is meant to ease patrons into Horse Head's freestyle performance, which is more akin to a sporting event or a rock show than an average night at the theater. Drinking will be interrupted by synchronized lights and sound, and patrons are encouraged to do whatever they want. "If you want to sit down and talk to someone or if you want to dance or if you want to bang on a drum, all those options are open for you," Holden says. 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. Frenetic Theater, 5102 Navigation.
