KALI: a pre-valentines day performance art adventure

February 15, 2012

This past weekend my BF and i drove south on 45 to what i consider one of Houston’s most obscure and whacky places inside the 610 loop, The Orange Show. (you can visit there website HERE) The evening’s show was entitled: KALI a pre-valentines day performance art adventure, and let me assure you, it was all of that and more! The evening was performed by and benefiting Continuum, a local Houston performance art group (check out there blog HERE).

The BF and i have recently gained the friendship of one of Continuum’s members: Sway Youngston. (check her out in motion HERE) We have seen her around town on numerous occasions but had yet to experience her “performing”.

The weather was miserable, literally almost freezing, but once the show started we forgot all about that and for the next 3 hours had our eyes glued to the stage as the Continuum members did their thing. Let me add that wearing lots of layers and having a stashed blanket in my truck helped a little too.

The show evening consisted of 17 performance and interactive pieces, and well, i’ll let you see the rest in photographs.

Many thanks to all the artists who put this show on, it was a mega success!

Feel free to ask any questions or post a performance art experience of your own.
