'Harvest' features two captivating world premieres and one classic Bruce Wood work.
The socially charged 'In My Your Head' by Joy Bollinger. Set to the layered and powerful sounds of Radiohead, 'In My Your Head' is a reflection on turbulent events worldwide.
'Live, Love, Laugh' by internationally lauded and award–winning dancemaker Bryan Arias celebrates personal growth through the journey of life, and how—as we age and grow—we learn not to take ourselves too seriously.
Completing the mixed bill is the revival of Wood’s masterpiece, 'Follow Me', produced in honor of Veteran’s Day. Commissioned in 2004 by the RiverCenter for the Performing Arts in Columbus, Georgia, Wood created this work in tribute to the brave men and women of the United States Infantry. Their motto, “Follow Me,” has significant meaning to every person who has ever served in the Army. Along with the dance cast, male and female reservists will join the dancers on stage.
Said Wood, “I don’t know what it’s like to be shot at, but I do know what it’s like when all your best friends die beside you, one by one. I decided to make a dance around the themes of brotherhood, nobility, courage, and sacrifice.”
