I can’t help but hang out with the super cool dancers of Hopestone Dance Company! They let me rehearse with them last season, so I had to tell everyone about their upcoming performance. On January 15, 2016, Hope Stone Dance returns to the stage with great joy to premiere Friday Flowers, a work based on choreographer Jane Weiner’s experiences as a struggling New York City dancer as well as readings from Steven Buchmann’s book “The Reason for Flowers.” Flowers and the fruits they often become have fed, sustained and inspired us throughout history. Friday Flowers explores this, as well as the affirming message “I am worth it,” in seven vignettes.
Along with HSD dancers, guest artists will be Melody Mennite Walsh (Houston Ballet, Principal) and actors Troy Schulze (Catastrophic Theatre) and Amy Garner Buchanan (Main Street Theater, Stark Naked Theatre, Texas Repertory Theatre, Young Audiences of Houston). Details for this one-night-only work are as follows:
