    The Pilot Dance Project Presents Jennifer Mabus' Requiem

    The Pilot Dance Project continues its mission of presenting evening-length work by independent choreographers with an original site-specific, immersive dance work by acclaimed Houston-based choreographer Jennifer Mabus. Requiem is a forty-five minute work that examines communal rituals of grief through the valence of the East End community and the story of the Morales family legacy that helped shape it. Requiem will be set in the historic Morales Funeral Home, the first Hispanic-owned funeral home in Houston.

    Dates: August 5
    Time: 2 pm, 3 pm, 4 pm, 6pm, 7pm, and 8 pm
    Location: Morales Funeral Home, 2901 Canal Street, Houston, Texas 77003
    Tickets: $16 presale, $20 at the door
    For tickets and more information please visit

    Audience members will be guided by the performers through the unique environment of the Morales Funeral Home. Audience and cast will collectively experience personal stories of grief, and, ultimately, hope.

    Requiem is the first evening-length work the company will produce after its recent departure from the Pilot on Navigation. “I’m really excited about this work because it shows the Pilot Dance Project is still about producing professional Modern dance in the East End,” says Executive/Artistic Director Adam Castaneda. “Now that we are not tied to a space, we can actually go into the community and create work about and for this vibrant neighborhood.”

    Requiem will run for six performances on August 5, and each presentation is limited to twenty-five audience members. The Pilot Dance Project Presents Jennifer Mabus’ Requiem is made possible by generous support from Christina Morales, the Morales Funeral Home, and John Virden.


    Adam Castaneda, Lindsay Cortner, Jade Devault, Elaine Fields, Ashley Horn, Kayla Hyde, Eva Jin, Tawnya Kannarr, Cloe Leppard, Donald Sayre, Emily Sayre, and Jennifer Mabus.

    20th Annual Back to School Giveaway!


    The Felix and Angela Morales Memorial Foundation, a Texas 501© 3, non-profit agency, announces its 20th annual Back to School Giveaway, scheduled for Saturday, August 19th, beginning at 8am, at 2901 Canal Street, Houston, TX.

    One of the few remaining family-owned funeral homes in Houston, Morales resonates with the East Downtown community as one of the neighborhood’s most influential entities. Christina Morales has continued her grandmother Angela V. Morales’ tradition of giving back to the predominantly Mexican-American residents of the East End by hosting events like the Giveaway and donating to local institutions like Community Family Centers, Houston Association of Hispanic Media Professors, Houston Community College and Pasadena ISD. The Morales Memorial Foundation was created by Morales’s grandmother in 1993 to empower young Latinos and others in the community to pursue education and a career. “The rapid change in East End is an opportunity for residents to benefit as well as contribute to the area and education is the vital for this to happen” says Christina Morales.

    The Back to School Supplies Giveaway is an opportunity for the funeral home to give back to the community and provide its future leaders with basic tools needed to start the school year off right.
