Time: 8:30 – 10 pm
Location: Allen’s Landing (1001 Commerce Street)

Cost: Free but reservations for tickets encouraged.
CounterCurrent kicks off with Ht/X, a live video spectacle on the underside of downtown’s Allen’s Landing Bridge by Austin-based multimedia artist Luke Savisky. The bridge’s arch will become a huge movie montage against the night sky; a watery reflection of the life along the river, a window through time and possibly even a passage to an inner world.
Afterwards, head on over to OKRA Charity Saloon for the CounterCurrent Opening Night Party! Mix and mingle alongside festival artists, fellow patrons, and locally-minded Houstonians. Drinks and light bites courtesy of the Mitchell Center.
