NW Dance Project's 2018-19 Portland Season

NEWMARK THEATRE
1111 SW BROADWAY (AT MAIN ST.)
DOWNTOWN PORTLAND - MAP

Spring blooms a trio of NW Dance Project's best and brightest original works:

SARAH SLIPPER / CASUAL ACT
NW Dance Project's founding Artistic Director finds inspiration in a seminal play and creates "an intense and beguiling abstraction from Harold Pinter's play Betrayal...one almost forgot the dancers weren't expressing themselves with language, as their movements so clearly and beautifully relay the drama of the story." (Oregon Arts Watch) View excerpts HERE.

IHSAN RUSTEM / YIDAM
NW Dance Project Resident Choreographer's third original work for the company, Yidam (2015), was inspired by his journey into Buddhism and meditation where "dancers fall only to be scooped up suddenly and lifted at square, stiff angles, creating a consistent juxtaposition between limp and sturdy...it's hard to look away from such breathless abandon." (Willamette Week) View excerpts HERE.

PATRICK DELCROIX / DRIFTING THOUGHTS
Nederlands Dance Theater star, real-life Knight, and acclaimed French choreographer Patrick Delcroix's Drifting Thoughts (2013) "has a bit of a gone-native, science-fiction feel to it, like an eqinoxial revel interrupted here and there by a brilliant Bikini Atoll flash of destruction…mesmerizing to watch." (Oregon Arts Watch) View excerpts HERE.

We're finishing off our big 15th Anniversary Season with what we are known best for — new works!

Join us and experience three inspired and inspiring world premiere contemporary dance works from three returning international choreographers:

Cayetano Soto (Spain) - NW Dance Project was the first company in the U.S. to commission works from this inventive and distinctive Barcelona-based choreographer and for his latest work for the company, he revisits and expands 2008's stunning trio, Last But Not Least, which The Oregonian reviewed as "a brief but striking trio piece for which the lighting rig was lowered to only a few feet above the dancers heads, creating a tighter framework for the intense movement."

James Canfield (USA) - The founding Artistic Director of Oregon Ballet Theatre and more recently former Artistic Director of Nevada Ballet Theatre returns to Portland and NW Dance Project, for which he has created eight previous works. For his latest, James takes on Tennessee William's classic A Streetcar Named Desire, which is sure to be riveting and unforgettable.

Felix Landerer (Germany) - Another NW Dance Project discovery! This award-winning Hannover-based choreographer has created two previous works for NW Dance Project and is noted for his intense physicality and dramatic vision.
