METdance presents Honored Guests
METdance is remembering its roots - and paying tribute to the artists who have helped them captivate and educate Houston for two decades with Honored Guests.
The event will include a world premiere by Katarzyna Skarpetowska, a frequent METdance guest artist based in New York. The piece, Snow Playground, is an abstract work which takes its inspiration from a peaceful image of swirling snow in a gentle wind as it moves across the surface of a children's playground.
The show will also include a reprise of ForeverFleeting by METdance associate director and past resident choreographer Joe Celej, as well as a performance of Semi Detached by past resident choreographer Kiki Lucas, and of Strange Humors, choreographed by Robert Battle, artist director of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.
There will be a special homage to METdance's Jazzman, the late Steven Boyd, as well as a collaborative piece by artists Jhon Stronks and Ben Doyle.
