Events at On the Boards & Velocity Dance Center

"...dance can teach us about a way to experience our presence on Earth, as opposed to looking only for the story to work out. Because that doesn't happen."
- Tere O'Connor

OtB partners with Velocity Dance Center in a celebration of master American choreographer Tere O'Connor, surrounding performances of his seminal suite of works: BLEED (presented at OtB), poem and Secret Mary (presented at OtB), and Sister (presented at Velocity).
