The Pilot Dance Project will present the final evening-length production at the Pilot on Navigation, formerly Frenetic Theater, before the independent black box theater closes its doors on May 15. The Pilot Dance Project will present an original dance work by acclaimed dance-maker jhon r. stronks, Once upon a time in the land of green skies, blue grass, and red bottom shoes …

stronks’ new work is an extended improvisational score that began as a series of workshops in the fall of 2016. Mixing mythology with contemporary concerns of community, identity, and accountability, Once upon a time in the land of green skies, blue grass, and red bottom shoes … is an allegorical fairy tale that utilizes the entirety of the Pilot on Navigation facility, including its dance studio, workshop area, exhibit hall, outdoor patio, and black box theater. stronks will collaborate with new media artist Brian Buck and costume designer Claire Hummel to create an interactive journey through the space that asks audience members to question their role in the present state of cultural affairs.

“I’m really excited that jhon is closing the space,” says Adam Castaneda, who has managed the theater for the past two years. “His work has said so much to me over the years, and I think red bottom shoes … is about to say much more. It is very much a reflection of this organization’s transition period, the Houston dance community at large, and the chaos of this current administration.”

The ensemble was cast from a broad spectrum of the Houston dance community, and includes long-time stronks collaborators as well as dancers new to his process. Once upon a time in the land of green skies, blue grass, and red bottom shoes … will run for six evenings and offer a different experience each night.

Shanon Adame, Emily Alvarez, Julie Bata, Brittani Broussard, Adam Castaneda, Roy Daniel, Eva Jin, Cloe Leppard, Nicole McNeil, jhon r. stronks, and Lori Yuill
