Tania Candiani: Lifeblood

September 22—November 19, 2023

Histories and lives embedded in the land – and particularly the waterways that have alternately built and destroyed Houston over time – will be the subject of a newly commissioned, multi-disciplinary work by Mexican artist Tania Candiani. In her past work, Candiani has worked across a spectrum of media and practices to explore the intersections between people, place, labor and industry. In so doing, Candiani initiates explorations and collaborations that convene communal meditations on the past via music, architecture, and craft, with an emphasis on early technologies and vernacular practices of record-keeping. Her work in Houston will be developed out of an intermittent eight-month residency sponsored and supported by the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts. A portion of this project was created in the Buffalo Bayou Park Cistern in collaboration with Buffalo Bayou Partnership.

L’enfant et les sortileges / Monsieur Choufleuri restera chez lui

Step into a world of French wonder and whimsy in these two one-act operas. With a libretto by the adventurous French novelist Colette, Ravel’s score escorts us through a magical world in which a mischievous child meets animals and objects who talk and teach him how to have compassion. Then accept the invitation to Mr. Cauliflower’s hilarious musical soiree where famous opera singers are expected to perform, but will they show up?
