LANDS - Portrait of the City of Houston

Jocelyn Cottencin and Emmanuelle Huynh

LANDS – Portrait of the City of Houston is a performance and film installation developed by French artists Jocelyn Cottencin and Emmanuelle Huynh. The evening will feature a series of outdoor performances that Cottencin and Huynh choreographed with their Houston-based collaborators: Ayla Davis, Liyen Chong, Roger Moore, Isabella Mireles, and Henry Sanchez, who will then guide the audience from the outdoors into the theater to experience the film installation.

LANDS expands on ideas of plurality, and the connections or disconnections between personal and cultural memory and local history, braiding together a unique chronology of the city that is part documentary, part poetic narrative, and part futuristic re-imaging of the local geography. 

LANDS was commissioned by DiverseWorks beginning in 2020 as part of FUSED (French U.S. Exchange in Dance), a program of Villa Albertine and FACE Foundation in partnership with the French Embassy in the United States. Houston is the fourth city in Cottencin and Huynh’s portrait series following their first collaboration in New York in 2017. The project will travel to Paris as part of the Chaillot Experience weekend dedicated to the United States at the Théâtre National de Chaillot on December 9th, 2023.
