Society for the Performing Arts: Ros Warby

Soldiers and swans have a lot more in common than we might think. They’re both brave, strong and, sometimes, afraid. Monumental, the piece Australian choreographer/dancer Ros Warby is performing in her first-ever Houston appearance, takes those two classic characters of ballet storylines, then adds cello music by Helen Mountfort, film and graphics to produce something that’s…well…monumental. 8 p.m. Wortham Center, 500 Texas. For information, call 713-227-4772 or visit www.spahouston.org. $22 to $42.

KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
