Myths & Realities of Life Along the Texas-Mexico Border

THURSDAY 7 FEBRUARY @ 6.00 PM

The dialogues and topics surrounding the U.S./Mexico border are extraordinarily complex; discussion subjects are inherently tied to both countries’ economies, budgets, national security, and the civil and human liberties of their citizens. In honor of Margarita Cabrera’s exhibition It is Impossible to Cover the Sun with a Finger, join Dallas Contemporary and the SMU Mission Foods Texas/Mexico Center for a panel discussion on these key issues moderated by Luisa del Rosal, the Executive Director of the SMU Mission Foods Texas/Mexico Center. Our distinguished panelists include Alfredo Corchado of the Dallas Morning News and Neil Foley of the Clements Center for Southwest Studies.

BRUCE WOOD DANCE

An Evening of Dance at Dallas Contemporary

SATURDAY 2 MARCH @ 6.30 PM

Bruce Wood Dance and Dallas Contemporary are proud to present an evening of dance inside Ian Davenport’s exhibition Horizons. Performed within contemporary art galleries, the evening is a multi-disciplinary and layered approach to exploring contemporary visual art, music, and dance as one. Dancers will directly engage with Davenport’s large-scale, dripped paintings. During the performance, musicians from Trio Kavanáh will perform composer Kimberly Osberg’s new work Interplay to new choreography.

 

Described as "emotionally charged and highly kinetic" by artandseek.org, Bruce Wood Dance has been named “Best Dance Company in Dallas” by D Magazine in 2013, 2014, and 2017; awarded "Best of Dallas Voice" annually since 2014; and appointed to every regional Top Ten list since 2011. Leading the company forward into its ninth year, Artistic Director Joy Bollinger is committed to BWD’s mission to present high-caliber, original, contemporary choreography that harnesses the power of dance as a tool for entertainment, enrichment, and healing. Fortified by Bruce Wood’s aesthetic, BWD produces and maintains his repertoire, commissions new work by resident choreographers and guest dance-makers, and contributes to the quality of life in Dallas Fort Worth, Texas, and across the nation.
