Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Pablo Helguera: The Fable Is to Be Retold, this live performance event features Helguera and Houston-area musicians and dancers and is inspired by childhood fables and fairytales. The recital includes adaptations of the story of “The Mock Turtle” from Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (1865), “The Swan” from Camille Saint-Saëns’s Carnival of the Animals (1886), and Scott Joplin’s Solace (Mexican Serenade) (1909). Performing artists include Harrison Guy (dance), Tomas Jonsson (piano), Candace Rattliff (dance), Yvonne Smith (viola), Yvonne Chen (piano), and Nicholas Wong (cello).

The performance will be followed by an exhibition opening reception for Pablo Helguera: The Fable Is to Be Retold in the gallery from 7 – 9 pm.
