About

Up Rising: A Night of Dance Commemorating Stonewall’s 50th Anniversary is a gathering of Houston’s most visible LGBTQ dance artists and community members in a celebration of the achievements and hard-fought successes of the gay rights movement over the past fifty years. In response to the exhibition Stonewall 50, Rebecca French and collaborators will bring together jazz, contemporary, ballet, and hip hop dance styles with a range of music and costumes, including drag performance. Join us for a commemoration of the Stonewall Riots that sparked the gay rights movement and a celebration of vibrant queer artwork and performance.

Choreography and performances by Jhon Stronks, Harrison Guy, Ayan Felix with Kate Rash, Donald Shorter, Kirstin Grbic with Ty Moore, Claire Beyrouty, Stoo, and RebeccaFrench–joined onstage by some of Houston’s most prominent LGBTQ+ trailblazers and community leaders.

Up Rising is funded in part by the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance and the Contemporary Arts Museum of Houston.
