Andrew Karnavas and Freneticore Dance at Wortham Center
On August 1, Andrew Karnavas is collaborating with Freneticore Dance to present Film Noir at the Wortham Center’s Cullen Theater. The music for this show includes three reworked versions of songs from his 2010 solo album – Film Noir, Fireflies, and I Didn’t Mind – and two brand new songs that are entirely electronic and co-arranged and co-produced by Runaway Sun band mate Matthew Davis Buehrer. Throughout Film Noir, an avid film fan is absorbed into the action and turned into a silver screen femme fatale. She journeys through a world between art and reality, a world of murder, doubt, and mystery, with the hope of leaving a dark past behind and being able to love again. Listen to Andrew’s new song, Danger:
Grace Rodriguez is pursuing her fascination with interactive art projections and creating a series of visualizations that the dancers will manipulate in real time with their movement onstage that will be projected on a giant screen behind them.
Director of Photography Raul Casares, the man behind the camera for Runaway Sun’s Bad Bad Man music video, shot black and white video footage of Houston as part of the show’s setting. Mix it all together and you get a wonderful blend of site and sound across many art forms.
And that’s just the opening act! That night Freneticore will also perform Rite of Summer, their modern take on Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, with a musical score that has been “chopped and screwed” by Houston composer Chris Becker. Please join us August 1 at the Wortham Center for an unforgettable experience. CLICK TO GET TICKETS
