Transcend: Best of “In the Round”
NOVEMBER 8th-10th | N.E.W. EXPRESSIVE WORKS
Performing in-the-round has resulted in some signature works for PDX Contemporary Ballet, and we have New Expressive Works (N.E.W) to thank for that. At roughly 35’ x 35’, the space naturally lends itself to an in-the-round seating configuration, through which the company has inadvertently learned the magic of presenting dance with 360 degree views for the audience. This show will feature excerpts from two full length works from the past: “Incipio”, the company’s very first performance at N.E.W., and “Configure”, a show inspired by sculpture.

ORIGIN: Humble Beginnings
february 21st-23rd | BodyVox Theater
Little known fact: Five years ago, this company had its first home in a church basement. As an ode to those humble beginnings, this show will bring back some of the very earliest choreographic works – some of which have not previously been performed outside the church underground. ORIGIN will also include the piece “Continually Beginning,” which serves as a reminder that we are never far from our roots.

ARISE: What Dance Could Be
May 22nd-24th | Bodyvox theater
Along the course of a journey that began in 2015, the company developed the vision and values that would define it. First and foremost, it is a place where dancers of all healthy body types are welcome and empowered for who they are. It is also a place where dance is approached with no preconceived ideas of what it “should be” but rather what it “could be.” The works presented in the season’s closing show have been selected as a showcase of these values, and include pieces with thought-provoking political undertones.
