"ReNEW covers new territory for the company. Lokking back on Bruce Wood's history we see the tremendous impact Lar Lubovitch had on Bruce;'s choreographic style. Wood was a principal performer with the Lar Lubovitch Dance Company, and his tenure with the company would later have a profound impact on his choreography. Seeing Elemental Brubeck on stage in Dallas will delight audiences with the joy of dance. With this performance, we celebrate where Bruce began, and showcase where his legacy continues to go," says artistic director Joy Bollinger.

LITURGY

Hailed as one of Wood's masterworks, Liturgy is set to five sections of J.S. Bach's Mass in B Minor for Chorus and Orchestra. The work premiered at Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth by the Fort Worth-based Bruce Wood Dance Company for the 10th anniversary. The dance was dedicated to Wood's longtime friend and artistic director of Jubilee Theater. Rudy Eastman. Leonard Euerka of the Forth Worth Weekly declared it "his finest work to date," describing it as "an indictment of religion and an affirmation of faith, " and Wayne Lee Gay of the Forth Worth Star-Telegram declared it "one of the most significant works of dance created in America." Restaged several times by both of Wood's companies, Liturgy exemplifies his uncanny ability to merge dance and spirituality.
