Houston Chonicle: Exploring the boundaries of artistic vision

Houston Chonicle | Friday April 18, 2014 @ 04:50:23 PM mt
Los Angeles artist Miwa Matreyek takes viewers into constantly shifting, dreamlike worlds by performing like a full-body shadow puppet within the space of her fantastical projected video animations. The shadows of her fingers light candles on a birthday cake that morphs into swirling imagery. Los Angeles filmmaker Wu Tsang uses mirrors to toy with perception for his "Moved by the Motion" video installation at DiverseWorks. Intentionally disorienting, it places viewers at the center, between two projection screens and two mirrored panels (one of which has a two-way mirror), to watch the 20-minute docu-fantasy "A day in the life of bliss." Through a series of increasingly tormented scenes, boychild replaced her clothes with spray paint, layering on one terrifying character after another. Friday's premiere at the Asia Society Texas Center combines a screening of about 50 minutes of their unfinished dance film and the recording of its final scene, a 20-minute live performance by Japanese ballerina Hana Sakai and Italian danseur Domenico Luciano. The book seemed a good starting point for all they wanted to explore, they said: the divide between East and West, between a couple at a critical point in a relationship, and also between different types of architectural spaces and atmospheres. "On a big stage, you can try with lights and design, but I love to create subtleties of movement and gesture; and the amazing film equipment today can follow a dancer so precisely," he said.

Houston Chonicle: Spoken: Leslie Peck former ballerina

Houston Chonicle | Friday April 18, 2014 @ 04:50:22 PM mt
"I love the way George Balanchine switched the music and put the elegy at the end of 'Serenade.' It's such an unusual thing to do, and yet it leaves you breathless, with this ethereal, quiet mystery." Leslie Peck, the former ballerina coaching Houston Ballet II in "Serenade," set to Peter Tchaikovsky's "Serenade for Strings in C, Op. 48." Performances at 7 p.m. Friday and 1:30 p.m. Saturday at the Wortham Theater Center, 501 Texas, also feature David Lichine's lively, comic "Graduation Ball" and Stanton Welch's classical showpiece "Studies." Tickets: $41-$51; 713-227-2787, houstonballet.org.

Houston Chonicle: Art gallery says goodbye to gray exterior

Houston Chonicle | Friday April 18, 2014 @ 04:50:22 PM mt
When they leased the rambling, split-level space on White Oak Drive just west of Houston Avenue about two years ago, they gave it a clean gray exterior. The Houston Symphony's players and management have reached a four-year agreement that will increase the orchestra's minimum salary to $97,240 in the 2017-18 season. The agreement helps smooth the way for the inaugural season of music director Andrés Orozco-Estrada, who takes over this fall. Reaching the agreement so far ahead of the deadline demonstrates the players and management have left behind the animosity that led to a strike in 2003, said Robert Peiser, president of the orchestra's board. Many musicians earn more than the minimum rate because of seniority or because of higher salaries for each section's principal and assistant principal players.
