After thirteen years of providing the Houston community with media-based, narrative-driven dance theater, FrenetiCore Dance has been restructured into the Pilot Dance Project. This new collaborative company has an emphasis in providing independent choreographers with the resources to create original evening-length dance theater. The inaugural production in this format is Vesper, a new dance work by acclaimed choreographer/filmmaker/costume designer Ashley Horn.
Vesper is an immersive performance rooted in ritual and tradition. Part supplication and part inspection, the evening unfolds through moments of cleansing, surrender, and questioning. Dancers construct meaning, purpose, and discernment through a series of tiny ceremonies. The evening begins with the audience invited to explore an onstage maze filled with intimate scenes of movement, nature, and light. Dancers perform personal rituals that the audience is invited to join before the maze is lifted into a canopy that the dancers will perform under for the remainder of the experience.
“I’m really excited that Ashley is directing this show at the Pilot on Navigation,” says Executive/Artistic Director Adam Castaneda. “Her work has been described by many as whimsical and magical, but I also think there is a high degree of escapism in the worlds that she creates, which I think is hard to find in Modern dance. I think the audience will get to experience something thoughtful and contemplative, but also something that transcends the time and space we’ll inhabit.”
Shanon Adame, Adam Castaneda, Dorianne Castillo-Rivera, Anna Claire Harris, Eva Jin, Cloe Leppard, Mollie Miller, Tori Pierce, and Kristina Prats
