When Tony Brandt, artistic director of Musiqa, reached out to Annie Arnoult of Open Dance Project about the possibility of collaborating on a concert, there was no question that Bodies In Motion would happen. “Both organizations are champions of interdisciplinary performance and the composition process,” she says. The program includes the world premiere of Three Pieces for String Quartet by Marcus Maroney, with choreography by Arnoult; and Lonely Suite for violin by Lera Auerbach, with choreography by Hope Stone’s Jane Weiner. Bodies is also an opportunity to experience an excerpt of the acclaimed Stalemate, which was created out of Arnoult’s frustration with the current political climate but takes on new meaning after Hurricane Harvey. “We began remounting the piece while we were all stuck in our homes, unable to get to the studio because of the flooding,” says Arnoult. “We could not get over the connections between our immediate experience and the opening monologue of the piece: Let’s go. We can’t. Why not? We’re waiting.”

7:30 p.m. Saturday. Hobby Center For the Performing Arts, 800 Bagby. For information, call 713-524-5678 or visit musiqahouston.org. $11 to $58.
