BRAVO TO TAPE 'ARTSBREAK' AT BOSTON'S NEWLY RENOVATED WANG CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS ON JAN. 30

 Bravo and Time Warner Cable of Malden to Co-sponsor Reception
 Featuring Special Guest Twyla Tharp
 WOODBURY, N.Y., Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Bravo, television's culture channel, will travel to Boston's famed and newly renovated Wang Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday, Jan. 30, to tape a special spotlight segment of "ArtsBreak," the network's cultural news showcase, it was announced today by Kathleen Dore, vice president and general manager of Bravo.
 The Wang Center for the Performing Arts will host The Twyla Tharp Dance Company's performance on Jan. 30. Immediately following, Tharp will join Bravo and Time Warner guests at a special VIP reception at The Wang Center for the Performing Arts. Tharp will be interviewed for "ArtsBreak" at the reception.
 "ArtsBreak," seen on Saturdays at 6 p.m. EST and interspersed throughout Bravo's schedule, is a cultural update on the arts which travels across the country reporting on major events. This special "ArtsBreak" is scheduled to premiere on Bravo this spring.
 The Wang Center for the Performing Arts, currently enjoying its 10th anniversary, is committed to a goal of supporting innovative new programming and educating audiences of the future, while remaining New England's premier performing arts center. When The Wang Center reopened its doors in September 1991 after enjoying a makeover to restore its luster, its many arts education programs reconvened, including its Young at Arts outreach program which brings artists into classrooms as well as providing access to the disabled and the elderly. Annual programs include a statewide competition called Art by Kids; Photography by Kids, an elementary school workshop program; Words by Kids, a literary competition for high school students; Drama Club, a theatrical program for student actors; and Art for Teachers, a daylong resource workshop.
 "Time Warner Cable of Malden is committed to supporting the arts in our community, and we appreciate the opportunity to partner with Bravo in giving national exposure to The Wang Center for the Performing Arts and the Twyla Tharp Dance Theater," commented Terry O'Connell, general manager of Time Warner Cable of Malden.
 Dore commented, "The fundamental purpose of Artsbreak' is to provide exposure for arts groups and activities that deserve a national spotlight. The Wang Center for the Performing Arts is an example of an organization where strong local commitment to the arts has created long term plans of ongoing cultural vibrancy and education in Boston."
 Bravo offers critically acclaimed American independent and international films as well as specials in the performing arts including dance, classical music and theater. This year, Bravo was honored as the first recipient of the Creator's Award by the National Academy of Cable Programming. This top award honors a network whose vast contributions have enriched the television medium.
 This winter, Bravo will offer a wide range of films and performing arts specials. Highlights include: the American television premiere of "The Dance Theater of Harlem: Three Pieces," with America's first classical black dance company performing three of their most popular works on Feb. 27; the Bravo premiere of the BBC classic series, "I, Claudius," on Feb. 3; a February "Broken Hearts" film festival which begins on Feb. 1 with "Love at Twenty," featuring five short love stories by major international directors -- Francois Truffaut, Renzo Rossellini, Shintaro Ishihara, Marcel Ophuls and Andrzej Wadja -- and ends on Valentine's Day with Woody Allen and Mia Farrow in "A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy." In March and April, Bravo celebrates jazz with Branford Marsalis hosting "Reed Royalty" a history of swing, on March 19 and "Tenor Titans," a look at the saxophone giants, on April 2. In April, Bravo steps into the footlights with its annual "Bravo on Broadway" festival of theater.
 Bravo is available to 10 million homes nationwide.
