The Big Deal: Bruce Wood Dance Presents ‘Rise’

by Gila Espinoza 8 Nov 2017 8:31 AM

The next presentation by Bruce Wood Dance is “Rise,” November 17 and 18 at Moody Performance Hall. “Rise” features two of Bruce Wood’s extraordinary works. “The Only Way Through Is Through,” with its bold, fierce movements and pounding intensity is in stark contrast to the tender and more comforting “Lay Your Burdens Down.” Finally, journey through an emotional story of hurt, loss, hope, and renewal in the world premiere of Joy Atkins Bollinger’s “Hillside.”

Gayle Halperin, president of Bruce Wood Dance, says “‘Rise’ is relevant to current events, and particularly to the devastation caused by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Its themes mirror the emotional turmoil from those losses, and the tenacity it takes to rebuild.”

Enter below for a chance to experience an unforgettable evening of dance with a pair tickets to the Friday night, November 17 performance.
