Beginning August 12, Hope Stone, in collaboration with Infinite Movement Ever Evolving, presents Lemonade Stand, a dance piece that Hope Stone executive director Jane Weiner says was inspired by the Nat King Cole song "Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer." This three-weekend dance festival will mark the first of four productions that make up Hope Stone's first complete season. Hope Stone's August run at Barnevelder will include Don't Bruise the Water, performed by Courtney Jones, a dancer who has made Houston her home after being on tour with the musical Wicked.
Friday and Saturday, September 3 & 4, NobleMotion Dance performs the hip-hop influenced On your Mark, Get Set, as well as Kinky Kool Fan Blowing Hard, a dance that utilizes industrial fans to blow the dancers around the stage
From mid-September to the beginning of October, Catastrophic Theatre takes over Barnevelder with the Houston premiere of Lisa D'Amour's Anna Bella Eema, a ghost story about a mother whose daughter makes a twin out of the mud by her trailer park home. D'Amour is an Obie Award-winner who previously collaborated with Houston's now-defunct Infernal Bridegroom Productions on the world-premiere play Hide Town.
