ROCO’s Connections Series returns to Asia Society Texas to present 'Rise Up' — an evening of new, thought-provoking chamber works and dialogue, spotlighting the ongoing fight for women’s rights and equality in the U.S., Iran, and around the world. Artistic partner Mei-Ann Chen leads an ensemble of 12 ROCO women musicians, in performance with members of the Houston Contemporary Dance Company and premiering new choreography by founding artistic and executive director Marlana Doyle. A panel discussion on women's rights featuring women from or with ties to Iran will follow the performance, in conversation with the composer.
