2018 - 2019 SEASON          

X-POSED  April 25-27

Polaris Dance Theatre's 2019 X-Posed will serve audiences a little taste of everything! 
2 Companies / 2 Choreographers

Polaris Dance Theatre is excited to present the 9th annual X-Posed show in Polaris’s own intimate black box theatre in northwest Portland. Presented this year will be new works from both of Polaris’s in-house companies, Polaris Dance Theatre and Ela FaLa Collective. Polaris Dance Theatre’s Artistic Director Robert Guitron explores dance through an arranged collection of young voices that speak with sincere honesty, unencumbered openness, and truth on the world through their eyes as they explore topics like racism, gun control, climate change, and more. This new work is offered as a work in progress and will be fully debuted as a body of work for the upcoming fall presentation. Guitron directs his cast of 7 dancers as they execute full body athleticism with the type of movement that would course through one's soul, conscious and subconscious being. Also included in the program are dances from the highly acclaimed work that originally debuted in 2011, Lil’ Mo. Lil’ Mo will add to the soul-nourishing experience that is Polaris. New to the Polaris Dance Theatre’s professional dance company branch is Ela FaLa Collective, directed by Brazilian dancer and choreographer Barbara Lima. This work will split the evening experience with her company’s cast of 7 powerful female dancers. Lima observes art through movement as she takes a gestural and visceral approach to cultural differences and experiments with the athleticism of style.
