Houston, TX (August 14, 2018) Internationally renowned Core Dance presents Human Landscapes, a dance work that follows eight company dancers on a migrant journey on October 25, 26, 27, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. at Harrisburg Art Museum, 4300 Harrisburg Blvd, Houston, 77011.  Set against the backdrop of a mural commissioned by Core Dance for the performances, choreographer Germana Civera seeks to express the endless movement which migrants across the globe experience on their way to a safe haven.  Performed to an original score by Didier Aschour, Civera draws upon her family’s experience as exiles during the Spanish Civil war to create a multi-sensory experience. Tickets are $15.00 and are available on-line:
