For its fall season of programs, the University of Houston Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts hosts artists who will use Houston as a laboratory and launching pad for imaginative new works.

Four artists in residence will explore Houston’s cultural, geographic and economic landscapes to draw inspiration for public programs and performances that range from groundbreaking musical events to insightful discussions to provocative theatrical ventures.

Season highlights include “Heart Chamber Orchestra,” an audiovisual performance that mixes classical music, technology and live human heartbeats and “The Boundary of Life is Quietly Crossed,” a newly commissioned talk by visual artist Dario Robleto. In November, theater maverick Aaron Landsman returns to Houston for “City Council Meeting,” a participatory blend of art, community and politics; and London-based group The Light Surgeons presents the explosive live cinema performance “SuperEverything*.” Many of these projects are part of the Mitchell Center’s residency program, which develops new work that is deeply connected to Houston.
