Bruce Wood Dance 13th Anniversary Performance & Gala
April 29 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
13th Anniversary Performance & Gala features acclaimed dances by legendary American choreographer Lar Lubovitch. Proceeds from this celebration support our programs and services for the community.
“This event pays tribute to Bruce Wood’s artistry as reflected in the work of his mentor Lar Lubovitch. Lubovitch had a profound influence on Wood’s creative style,” says the company’s Artistic Director, Joy Bollinger.
This once-in-a-lifetime performance spotlights Lubovitch’s work in:
• Conversing with Brahms (Dallas premiere). Inspired by the musical mysteries of Johannes Brahms’ “Piano Pieces, Opus 76”, accompanied live by guest pianist José Antonio Cubela,
• Concerto Six Twenty–Two (Dallas premiere). Created in 1986 at the height of the AIDS epidemic, this masterpiece has become one of Lubovitch’s most celebrated works, and
• Elemental Brubeck. Set to the exhilarating jazz of Dave Brubeck, this tribute to mid-century American music and social dances will energize the room!
