Houston Fringe Festival


Created and performed by Blake Beckham and Hez Stalcup

Atlanta-based performance outfit, The Lucky Penny brings "fails", an experimental dance duet created and performed by Blake Beckham and Hez Stalcup. Playful and irreverent, the work is an earnest examination into the nature of failure, offering a timely reflection on conditions of loss, rupture, futility and collapse.

"fails" features live original music by Alessandra Hoshor, who performs under the moniker Pamela_and her sons.Read more
