But like an evening’s sleep interrupted by a bad dream or bout of insomnia, there is often much restlessness and turmoil within.<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Tue, 29 Oct 2013 19:55:48 +0000 Mark Pinto 6626 at http://wrti.org Mark Pinto Suggests: Pianist Michael Landrum's NOCTURNES Temple Dance Creates New Multimedia Work http://wrti.org/post/temple-dance-creates-new-multimedia-work <p></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Temple University's Dance Department has commissioned a new work to be performed by </span>world-renowned, Philadelphia-based <span style="line-height: 1.5;">Rennie Harris Puremovement.
