"Nothing Sticks" is a tale about resistance and change that tackles the complexities of impermanence and the human tendency to doubt even our own perceptions of reality.
The Sept. 27 performance also will feature a new solo performed and choreographed by Chu, Love Trailings, as well as a sneak preview of his commissioned new work for WMU dancers scheduled for premiere at the Winter Gala Dance Concert in January 2014.
