Free tickets to Doug Varone!

Anyone out there a fan of modern dance and a booklover? We have a pair of tickets to this in-part literary themed dance performance next Wednesday night!

Drop us a line and we'll pick a winner at noon tomorrow!

"The performance concludes with Chapters from a Broken Novel, a new work co-commissioned by Ovations along with Bates Dance Festival. Created from a collection of hundreds of phrases, snippets of conversations, found quotes and vivid images gathered together in the pages of Varone’s journal — these “chapters” revel in a multiplicity of meanings that live between the lines. From the smallest gesture to full-throttle bursts of movement, Varone’s work can literally take your breath away."


UPDATE: Our winner is Mike B.! Thanks to everyone who threw their names in the hat! :)
