From \"My Brother\'s Keeper\"

Bruce Wood and friends will give us two shows in 2013, including an expanded version of My Brother's Keeper in the spring and three premieres in the summer.

published Sunday, December 23, 2012

After making a triumphant return to the local dance scene in 2011, and giving us a just one show each summer for the past two years (although 2012's concert had two programs), the Bruce Wood Dance Project has big things in store for 2013. This includes a spring show, an expanded version of My Brother's Keeper, which debuted in the 2012 summer program, at Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing Arts; followed in the summer by three performances at the City Performance Hall.

The latter will include two new works by Wood, and one by artistic associate Joshua L. Peugh, who had a hit with his work Slump at BWDP this summer.

Here's more from the news release:

Bruce Wood Dance Project is excited to announce that SEASON 3 offers two completely different premieres in March and June: “My Brother’s Keeper” on March 15 and 16, and “3 New Works” on June 21 to 23. Artistic Director Bruce Wood has won critical acclaim with his original, engaging, and entertaining productions.

“I believe that people will forget what you said; they will forget what you wrote; they will even forget what you did. But, people will never forget how you made them feel. I remember this every time I make a dance, and it is probably the one thing that governs all the choices I make,” said Wood.


My Brother’s Keeper: Montgomery Arts Theater, Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing & Visual Arts, March 15 and 16 at 8 p.m.

Wood expands his innovative all-male, mixed generation work into a one-act dance/theater piece with no intermission to interrupt the action. In Wood’s understated way, the audience can count on a riveting and provocative experience. Tickets will be available online in late January at

Three New Works: Dallas City Performance Hall, Dallas Arts District, June 21 and 22 at 8 p.m. and June 23 at 2 p.m.

Artistic Director Wood and Associate Choreographer Joshua Peugh have distinct artistic voices and unique movement styles. Together, these two choreographers offer different perspectives on themes drawn from everyday relationships—exploring the ups and downs, and feelings in between. Both styles are socially relevant and rich in after-images, and have a special ability to get leave the audience wanting more. The program features two works by Wood and one by Peugh. Tickets for this performance will be available online in May at

Wood Dance Project is dedicated to cultivating new choreography with seasoned professionals and talented protégés; creating high-caliber productions; and contributing to the dynamic cultural life of our region. In 2012, Wood invited Peugh to leave South Korea and join BWDP as Associate Choreographer. Under BWDP’s tutelage, Peugh debuted his world premiere, “Slump,” marking his success as an emerging choreographer in the United States. Thanks For Reading
