May art festival to hold performances throughout city
The Mitchell Center, in collaboration with Aurora Picture Show and DiverseWorks Art Space, presents the Insight/Out Festival on May 19 and 20 at various locations across the city.
The festival opens at 2 p.m. May 19 at the Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park, near the Galleria.
International award winning artist Stephan Koplowitz presents “TaskForce – Natural Acts in Artificial Water,” a water-themed, site-specific performance that features professional dancers, including some UH students, composer Aaron Hermes and the music of Space City Gamelan. A second performance will take place at 4 p.m. on May 20.
The “Scoot-In,” a greener take on the old school drive-in theaters, takes over downtown’s Sesquicentennial Park, at 8 p.m. May 19.
The festival closes at Project Row Houses, 2505 – 2521 Holman St., with two performances of “Seven in the Third.” Composer Travis Weller created this site-specific chamber music performance to spread across the seven historic row houses.
Performances are at noon and 3 p.m.
All events are free and open to the public.
