Performance: NMSA First Thursdays / December
December 6 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
New Mexico School for the Arts is in the midst of renovating and repurposing their new Railyard location, and they’re wasting no time injecting fresh creative energy into the arts district. The arts high school collaborates with form & concept on NMSA First Thursdays, a monthly performance series featuring new, experimental, and collaborative work by NMSA students and faculty. The series was co-founded by Kurt Isaacson, Hakim Bellamy, and Sandy Zane in spring of 2018, and has featured student performances from all five arts departments at NMSA: visual art, theater, dance, music, and creative writing.
The Art of Text Painting
NMSA students share both poetry and music inspired by their work on “text painting,” the technique of evoking the emotions present in musical composition. The evening will feature student readings and performances curated by Denise Hinson, Coordinator of Creative Writing, and supported by Darci Balkcom, Voice Instructor & Vocal Division Coordinator.
