Ode to the Elements Forever
Oct.24 & 25, 2014 8pm | 2 NIGHTS ONLY!
Longstanding Austin belly dance performance artist Helene Christopher,
aka Z-Helene, is producer, choreographer, and artistic director.
She will be reviving material from her earlier work Ode to the
Elements which premiered in Austin in 1989. This present rendition
consists of three large dance pieces to the original music that
was commissioned by Z-Helene in 1988-89. The thematic material
of one large group dance explores the elements of Earth, Air,
Fire, Water, and Spirit. Another dance enacts a modern interpretation
of the Greek myth of the maiden goddess Persephone. Z-Helene
will perform an in-depth solo highlighting her 37-year dance
career. Finally, there will be a live music, vocals, and large
group dance portion of the show continuing the elements theme.
Ode to the Elements Forever will synergize music, dance, song,
color, and emotional depth into an evening of high entertainment
and soulful art. It promises to dazzle, captivate, and move
the audience on many levels - a true cornucopia of sight, sound
