Bruce Wood Film in Fest
Longtime readers probably remember Weekly dance critic Leonard Eureka’s raves about Bruce Wood Dance Company, a Fort Worth-based Modern troupe founded in 1995 by the titular choreographer, who studied under Balanchine at New York City Ballet. In 2007, BWDC bowed to economic pressures and closed up shop. A short documentary about the company’s last days, Fallen Angel, has been nominated for Best Short Documentary honors by the Fourth Annual Trail Dance Film Festival (January 22-24 in Duncan, Okla.), one of MovieMaker’s “25 Coolest Film Festivals” (2009). The film, produced by Fort Worth-based Broken Films and written and directed by Broken Films’ Mark Whittier, will be screened at TDFF on Sun., Jan. 24.
