FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Richmond, TX) – ARTreach will present the CORE Performance Company “ELDER STORIES” at the Mamie George Community Center located at 1111 Collins Road in Richmond, TX 77460 on Thursday, April 19th, 10:00 AM- 11:30 AM
This special presentation features the Atlanta based CORE Performance Company in Houston and on tour through April 20th. “Elder Stories” at the Mamie George Community Center will be presented as an interactive presentation and workshop for seniors in Fort Bend County.
CORE is committed to innovation, collaboration and artistic risk-taking through the creation, performance and presentation of contemporary dance. Elder Stories is a workshop that encourages the participants to share a meaningful story about their lives, which the CORE dancers then manifest in movement.
ARTreach is an art education and outreach organization that brings the arts to underserved populations including seniors, the elderly and disabled in Fort Bend County.
The public is invited. This event is free and made possible in part by a grant from Texas Commission on the Arts, Fort Bend Culture & Arts Alliance and individual supporters of the Mamie George Community Center and ARTreach.
