Continue Live Arts Series

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.

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 continuumperformanceart@gmail.com.

About Continuum:

Continuum is a social sculpture project formed by a group of artists that came together in a performance art workshop facilitated by Julia Wallace in March and April of 2011 at The Jenner House in Houston, TX.  Through the four week interactive experience the artists discovered ways of creating powerful performances through collaboration, participation, experimentation, documentation, and encouraging feedback. They are connected in the desire to help and encourage each other's self discovery through performance, as well as to give the gift of performative expression to others. Continuum aspires to create an encouraging and safe atmosphere for each other as well as the community to explore and express themselves through the medium of performance art. www.continuumperformanceart.com
