Continuum presents a series of wildly adventurous live art events and workshops for their upcoming residency at AvantGarden.
Houston’s performance art group Continuum happily announces their first Artist Residency granted by Houston’s art and entertainment venue, AvantGarden. The members of Continuum will host a series of site specific performance art events and workshops for a period of six months, from November 2012 to April 2013. The Grand Opening Night of Continuum Live Art Series will be held on Friday, November 30th beginning at 7:30 PM and will include cutting edge performance art from Julia Wallace, Jonatan Lopez, Unna Bettie, Hilary Scullane, Koomah, Evan McCarley, Raindawg, Zubi Puente & Y.E. Torres, Tina McPherson, Black Magic Marker, Militia “Malice” Tiamat, Jessica Mendez, Chus Martinez, Jana Whatley and more.
In the past couple of years Houston has witnessed extraordinary growth in its performance art scene. Continuum has been an integral part of this nascent growth, having facilitated an engaging series of workshops and performance events at local venues as well as guerrilla style performances around town. With “Continuum Live Art Series”, the group will continue encouraging local emerging performance artists by providing the opportunity to experiment and expand their body of work. AvantGarden, a venue that recently took part in organizing and hosting “Lone Star Explosion,” Houston’s first International Performance Art Biennial, is the ideal host for this exciting endeavor due to its interest in supporting the medium of performance art.
Continuum Live Art Events will usually occur on the last weekend of each month. Workshops will be held on Sunday evenings at AvantGarden’s upstairs gallery two weeks prior to each Live Art Event. Workshop participants will be able to sharpen their ideas through fun performance exercises and encouraging feedback provided by Continuum members. The Grand Opening will include over ten local performance artists that will inhabit the venue in a unique and provocative way, inviting the audience to become part of the art itself.
Participation is encouraged! If you are interested in performing at the monthly events or attending the workshops, please email Continuum at email@example.com.
