Described by Dance Magazine as "a gifted dance maker out to conquer every mode of dance," DiMuro has created performance and dance works for Dance/Umbrella Boston, for the "Something Different Series" at the Kennedy Center, for Bates Dance Festival and Boston Ballet II, as well as the Boston-based Peter DiMuro Performance Associates.

His performance of Light Reading is based on a series of letters between DiMuro and his mother, father, and sister. It reflects on one person's experience of coming out, both as a one-time point of family epiphany and as an ongoing process, and also deals with other significant events in his family members' lives.

The performance will be held on Saturday, Sept. 23, at 8 p.m. in OWU's Chappelear Drama Center, 45 Rowland Ave.

Single tickets are $10 for general admission, $8 for senior citizens, and $4 for students ages 6 to 18. For more information or to reserve tickets call 740-368-3185.
