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 dance works from three returning international award-winning choreographers:
Sarah Slipper (Canada, NW Dance Project Artistic Director) / Save Me The Plums (World Premiere)
No one knows NW Dance Project’s talented and fearless dancers quite like the company’s founding Artistic Director, Sarah Slipper, whose dramatic works have been wowing audiences for the past 15 years. For her latest creation, an intimate male/female duet for Princess Grace Award winners Andrea Parson and Franco Nieto, Sarah has found inspiration in Pablo Neruda’s poem, “Tonight I Can Write the Saddest Lines.”
James Canfield (USA) / Sketches of Connotation (World Premiere - based on A Streetcar Named Desire)
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 Williams’ classic A Streetcar Named Desire, which is as relevant today as it ever has been, setting the story to a collection of pop songs from the 1940s to today.
Felix Landerer (Germany) / All's Been Said (World Premiere)
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. For his latest work, Felix takes a look at our perceived paralysis with respect to combating climate change.
