Dress Rehearsal with YE Torres
Director Celestina Billington/ Collaborators: Matt Fries, Julian Luna, YE Torres & InputOutput
“Sacred Voice of the Bayou” was an interdisciplinary performance and installation project that intertwined social practice, community folkloric studies, hispanic heritage, ecstatic dance, and a three month installation that utilized sound and steel to immerse audiences. "Sacred Voice of the Bayou," was mobilized by a $42,000 grant award that I received from an Our Town grant by the National Endowment of the Arts as distributed by Houston Arts Alliance, and was ultimately unveiled through a community-wide festival that had roughly 500 attendees. I was the concept artist, director, and administrator of the project.
