Bridgman | Packer Dance makes Dallas debut
Bridgman | Packer Dance Company doesn’t just create art, it likes to riff on it. Take, for instance, the show Voyeur, coming to City Performance Hall this weekend: The movement is actually inspired by the painting of seminal American realist Edward Hopper. But that’s just the beginning of this imaginative troupe, which includes video installations as well. Presented by TITAS.

After Orlando benefit tackles Pulse nightclub shooting
The shooting at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub stunned the nation, but it also triggered a reaction from theater artists worldwide.
