“I believe that when you see a performance, your life should be changed;

altered in some way. The echo of it should linger with you for days afterwards.

I expect that when the curtain finally goes up, you should experience

something quite remarkable, something magical, something healing.”

Bruce Wood®

ON THE MOVE

New Moves for a Revered Dance Company

By Manuel Mendoza I The Dallas Morning News I July 19, 2017

Bruce Wood® is the best choreographer of the past 20 years whom most dance fans have never heard of. That oversight should change when the late Fort Worth native’s company begins touring his unparalleled body of work outside Texas. Formerly known as the Bruce Wood Dance Project, the group has shortened its name to Bruce Wood Dance to reflect its permanence and signed with Austin-based KMP Artists for both national and international bookings.

Its first showcase for presenters comes next month at the Arts Midwest Conference in Columbus, Ohio, but tour dates likely won’t be set for a year or two. The project formed in 2011, four years after Wood closed his first troupe. If not for the strength of the 80 or so pieces he created between 1996 and his death in 2004, the 53-year-old’s legacy might have been lost. Instead, the project has carried on with revivals of his humanistic dances and new work by like-minded choreographers.
