Of all of the diverse and meaningful words in the English language, there are a few that carry with them a particular sense of purpose.”Thanks” is one of them, along with it’s close siblings, the lesser-used “you’re welcome” and the perhaps over-used “I’m sorry.” “Help” would also make the cut, but for slightly different reasons: it entails more vulnerability than the others and it entails a call to action.
Dance director Marko Westwood lives above an elderly couple whose rent money was recently stolen. The two are facing an immediate payment of $400 with more due later and eviction if they cannot pay. Westwood and the performers in Nevada Repertory Dance Theater, his company, have teamed up with the folks at Insurgo to produce a concert whose proceeds will directly benefit this couple.
The show will be at Insurgo’s Bastard Theater on Feb. 2 at 7:30 p.m.; tickets are $10 cash at the door. To make a donation directly to the couple online, visit the Insurgo homepage. Either way, they will thank you.
