Texas Performing Arts is presenting a mini-series of virtual events in the next few weeks, all of which are very timely:
- “Kristina Wong for Office,” Sept. 18-20, features the performance artist, comedian, and real life elected official and her raucous ‘campaign’ to arouse civic engagement and counter-hijack democracy. Sept.
- On Sept. 22, Boston-based contemporary chamber ensemble Hub New Music premiere a new work by Carlos Simon and recent commissions from Hannah Lash and Kati Agócs.
- “American Dreams,” Oct. 2-3, imagines a world where the only way to gain U.S. citizenship is by competing in a live online game show where the audience decides.
- Playing Oct. 10-11, Charles O. Anderson’s “(Re)current Unrest” is an evening-length immersive performance installation ‘ritual’ on the sonic foundation of Steve Reich’s three earliest works: It’s Gonna Rain (parts 1 and 2), Come Out, and Pendulum. This work utilizes movement, media and powerful imagery to meditate on the “American Dream” and Black nihilism, borne of the current racially charged moment.
