The Texas International Theatrical Arts Society (better known as “TITAS”) has announced its 2015-2016 Season, named “Breaking Normal.” A title that describes the collage that is the TITAS Presents 2015-16 Season, this name represents programming that features the world premiere of the Twyla Tharp 50th Anniversary Tour, of groundbreaking, trailblazing dance companies lighting up stages across the globe.
The AT&T Performing Arts Center in Dallas partners with TITAS Presents to host this bold and diverse season, which includes nine debut performances, two world premieres and an unprecedented roster of international artists.
