Karen Stokes Dance premieres “Color Remix,” a site-specific performance in response to the art installation, “Arcade,” on October 6, 2017, at 7 p.m. at Discovery Green®, 1500 McKinney St, Houston, TX 77010. “Arcade,” a series of dynamic streamer sculptures by noted Texas-based artist duo Sunny Sliger and Marianne Newsom of The Color Condition, brings explosive hues and whimsy to Avenida Houston. “Color Remix” will take place in front of the George R. Brown Convention Center on the Avenida des las Americas, under the installation “Double Dutch.”Inspired by the playfulness and colorful streamers of the installation, Stokes combines rhythms, traditional folk dancing, and her signature quirky style to engage audience members to play and dance with the performers. The performance will be accompanied by live music played by Terrence Karn.  “Color Remix” was developed in a residency at Discovery Green® made possible by a generous grant from The Humphreys Foundation. The performance is free and open to the public. “Arcade”will be on view from August 17 to November 15, 2017.
Sculptures will remain on view at Discovery Green®
and in front of the George R. Brown Convention Center through November
Visitors are invited to share their experiences using the hashtags #ColortheAve, #DiscoveryGreen and #AvenidaHouston. More information is available at www.discoverygreen.com/color.
