Houston Ballet dancers, Axiom Quartet cellist unite for ‘Traces of Us’

Join us for a live multidisciplinary online art experience, hosted by Chris Johnson, that reflects on how we maintain the positive connections in our lives via our virtual avatars.

Inspired by the form and content of Jacqui Sutton’s poem Contact Tracing, the event will begin with a reading of the poem by the poet herself.

From the unique perspective of their own homes, Nao Kusuzaki, Creative Minds Collaborative Artistic Director, will perform alongside Houston Ballet principal dancers, Chun Wai Chan and Karina Gonzalez. Patrick Moore, of the Houston based Axiom Quartet, will augment the self-choreographed performance with solo virtuoso cello pieces by Bach, Saint-Saens, and Handel.

In addition, several new pieces have been commissioned by the Houston based composer Karl Blench.  The new works of Karl Blench will take the musical ideas from the older works on the program to mirror the idea of contact tracing musically.

This event will take place on the video conferencing platform Zoom.  Every attendee of the event will have the best seat in the house to experience these world class performers artwork.  In addition, attendees will also have the opportunity to interact with these artists through Zoom’s chat feature.
