Frame Dance emerges in public performance in the glorious McGovern Gardens
Guided by founder and artistic director Lydia Hance, Frame Dance Productions has been dedicated to the act of creating dance in Houston for the past 11 years. To commemorate a decade (+1!) of acclaimed work, as Nancy Wozny describes in Dance Magazine, “Lydia Hance, the city's reigning guru of dance in public places, plans a celebration of her organization Frame Dance in the roomy McGovern Gardens. Originally scheduled in 2020 to celebrate a decade of Frame Dance Productions since its founding in 2010, this event -- postponed by the pandemic -- re-emerges now to recognize 10+1 years of the company and the return to public dance performance. Ticket holders will have reserved seating, staggered timed entrance times, floral-inspired cocktails and an edible flower treat. Performance spaces are outdoors in the gardens with a seated performance at the Cherie Flores Garden Pavilion. The event is held from 6:30-8pm, with the gardens open to the general public until 7pm.
Performers and Collaborators include: Alli Villines, Patrick Moore, Kirk Suddreath, Ashley Horn, Jacquelyne Jay Boe, Lindsay Cortner, Rachael Hutto, Emily Roy Sayre, Jamie Williams, MultiGen Framers Ensemble, several Frame Dance students from the children's program. [Organizer's description]
