Studio Sassafras ‘From the Ground Up: Party & Performance’ Night 1 & 2

Press Release

April 28, 2022


From the Ground Up: A Visual Wonderland is two evenings of dance, music, drag, immersive projection art, and more at Studio Sassafras on May 27th and 28th. 

Produced by Rivkah French Choreography and their team, From the Ground Up: A Visual Wonderland will bring folks together to raise awareness and funds for a new performance space being built in the 5th Ward: the future Q’astle Theater.

The events will feature the talents of Rivkah French and dance collaborators, alternative drag artist Dyna with a D, and an immersive projection installation by Jeremy Keas, as well as visual art and a live water feature. 

The theme ‘From the Ground Up’ coincides with the first phase of the building process: laying the foundation. Stone (the foundation of buildings) and water (the foundation of life) will serve as the evening’s motifs. Studio Sassafras’s concrete floors will offer the perfect foundation for the performers to ripple and move across.

The Q’astle Theater, according to French, will “provide the Houston arts community with a breathtaking, welcoming, sustainably-built performance space in the 5th Ward.” Donations to the GoFundMe for the space can be made here.
