Dominic Walsh Dance Theater: Fall Mixed Rep

The Dominic Walsh Dance Theater opens its tenth-anniversary season with the spectacular Fall Mixed Rep. Among the new work being presented is Come un Respiro by Italian choreographer Mauro Bigonzetti. Set to classical music by Handel, Come un Respiro uses a distinctly unclassical vocabulary, with angular movements punctuating the work’s strong elegance. Adding even more spark to the new works is Stefania Figliossi, who created the role and will be performing it here. (She’s now a DWDT company member.)

Former Houston Ballet favorite and frequent Walsh partner during his days with HB, Lauren Anderson appears in The Dying Swan. The program also includes a revival of Walsh’s Katharsis, which premiered during the company’s first season, and the Houston premiere of Walsh’s The Whistling, which features Cuban music from the 1940s.

Oh, did we mention that DWDT just won the Houston Press Best of Houston® award for Best Dance Company? Just thought we’d throw that in. 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Hobby Center, 800 Bagby. For information, call 713-315-2400 or visit $25 to $85.
