Frank sez:

Come out for Artcrawl this Saturday!

A message to all members of ArtsHouston

Come out to DiverseWorks on Saturday, November 17 for Jean-Baptiste André's new work comme en plein jour (as in full day). We will also be hosting a reception immediately following the performance with drinks and appetizers. Buy your tickets in advance by calling 713.335.3445 anytime and get $5 off general admission tickets for the Saturday performance when you mention ArtsHouston! Performance starts at 8pm. Read the cover story about Jean-Baptiste online!

Jean-Baptiste André continues to research the body, the topic of identity, and the notion of metamorphosis in his new work, comme en plein jour (as in full day). Jean-Baptiste is fascinated by the metamorphosis figure and how the body, in a wide and clear space, can create shapes and form; This diptych to 2004's Interieur Nuit is powered by an electronic score, where circus, dance, and video art meet in a world of uncertain identity, shifting colour, startling landscapes, and skewed perspective.

Jean-Baptiste has recently been working as the artist-in-residence at the Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media in Japan. He has been working with musician Aoki Takamasa and videographer Noriko Matsumoto to investigate the connections between dance, camera, music and technology. Andre has also been working with noted multi-media installation artist Robin Rhode on a work on video titled The Storyteller.
