Belonging (or not) Abroad
Group Acorde will create a new original work showcasing one of its founding members, Brazilian born and raised, Roberta Paixao Cortes. Her Choreography will be accompanied by an original musical score inspired by various Brazilian musicians and composed by Seth Paynter and Thomas Helton. The evening will also revisit and expand on one of her early works for the company: “Fear: a work in progress.” The company’s works will tell Roberta’s story of immigrating to Houston from Porto Alegre, Brazil seventeen years ago and the many struggles she encountered daily in trying to belong to a different culture, city, and country.
This project is funded in part by the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance. Rehearsal space provided in part by Dance Source Houston artist in residency program.
