Rising Action

During The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, we couldn't stop visualizing our skinny little ex-co-worker Kay. You see things in your head when you read literature, right? No? Come on, we're not the only one.

Well, um, at least we know that Center Dance Ensemble is in our boat, because they've created American Voices, a program of works inspired and accompanied by great pieces of American verse. Getting all interdisciplinary like this is a swell way for the Herberger Theater Center's resident modern dance company to help people appreciate something they might not otherwise get excited about (whether that's modern dance or American poetry).

KEEP PHOENIX NEW TIMES FREE... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, 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.
