LiveWire

For two decades NobleMotion Dance and Musiqa have been breaking artistic boundaries in Houston and winning national acclaim for their adventurous programming. At the same time, Jose Luis Contreras-Vidal, director of the BRAIN Center at University of Houston and professor of electrical and computer engineering, has been pioneering nonsurgical brain-machine interfaces to understand the brain in action in clinical, artistic and classroom settings. This January, for the first time, the groups converge to present the world premiere of LiveWire, an innovative collaboration between scientists, musicians and dancers who will wear EEG skull caps (brain caps), while performing a new work centered around a new string quartet by artistic director Anthony Brandt, set to choreography by Andy and Dionne Noble. The performance also includes the Houston premieres of Pierre Jalbert’s Piano Quintet and Carlos Simon’s Loop for String Trio, as well as NobleMotion’s premiere of The Spider’s Den set to Lei Liang’s Gobi Gloria. NobleMotion’s dynamic Rhythm Study and artwork by Houston-based visual artist Emily Fens round out the program.

WHY PAY-WHAT-YOU-CAN?

We believe in making our work available to everyone, regardless of how much they can afford to pay. We suggest a $35 ticket price if you aren’t sure what choice to make. But here’s a little more about the other possibilities:

MORE THAN $35
If our whole audience paid the suggested rate, it still wouldn’t offset the cost of paying artists, composers and designers to make this production happen. But if you pay more, you’ll help us pay those people PLUS make it possible for a student, artist or any other audience members with less financial means to see the show too.
LESS THAN $35
We want you to come to our shows, whether you can afford the suggested rate or not. Just choose one of the lower options that best fits your budget. Don’t see a rate that works for you? Call the box office to reserve by phone: (713) 521-4533.
