HopeWerks Presents Inside Out by Amy Llanes

Hope Stone’s third and final performance 
of the 
2012-2013 HopeWerks Season –
Inside Out by Amy Llanes

June 18, 2013- (Houston, Texas): Hope Stone, Inc announces the 2012-13 HopeWerks season’s third “works-in-progress”showing, Inside Out, by Amy Llanes.

Inside Out, actively focused on Llanes’ artistic vision for Rednerrus Feil Dance Company (RFDC), was strongly influenced by Pablo Picasso’s quote, “Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.” The showcase explores personal ideals and experiences as well as current events Llanes is facing throughout the process and gives them a visual voice through two works: a solo investigating the many layers of innocence and the repercussions of its loss; and a duet assisting Llanes in defining feminism for herself.

Named one of Houston Press’ 100 Creatives for 2013, Amy Llanes, Artistic Director and Choreographer of RFDC, holds a B.F.A and a M.F.A. in dance from SHSU. As adjunct dance faculty with Lone Star College and a collection of over 30 works in her repertory, Llanes’ works have been showcased at ACDF, DanceHouston, Dance Gallery, Big Range Houston’s Dance Gathering, and numerous venues throughout Texas and Louisiana.

Performances are on June 28 and 29, 2013, at 8:00pm at Hope Stone Studios. Tickets for each of the shows are $5 and are available at the door. Hope Stone Studio is located at 1210W. Clay #26, Houston, TX 77019.
