COVID-19 Update from White Bird

The well-being of our audience members, artists, and staff is of the utmost importance to us. We totally share your concerns about the spread of COVID-19. Our hearts go out to all those in our Portland community and around the world who are being impacted by this pandemic. 

Governor Kate Brown has issued an order to cancel or postpone gatherings of 250 or more in the state of Oregon for the next four weeks. In light of the governor’s ban, White Bird will postpone the upcoming performances of Camille A. Brown & Dancers scheduled for April 2-4, 2020 to our next season 2020-2021. We have also had to cancel ChangMu Dance Company that was scheduled for April 15, 2020. At this time, we are hopeful that our upcoming performances of the Dance Theatre of Harlem will continue as planned, but that is uncertain now.
 
Postponing and cancelling performances is an extremely difficult decision to make, but we know it is the socially responsible thing to do in order to best serve our community. As this situation evolves, we will communicate as clearly and directly about our plans and activities to continue to offer world class dance in the safest possible environment.

It is impossible to postpone performances without creating serious and lasting hardships for our organization and the wonderful artists we bring.

For questions about tickets, please contact White Bird by email at ivy@whitebird.org or call 503-245-1600 ext. 201. All current ticket holders will be contacted soon via email with information and updates once details are confirmed for the rescheduled dates. Thank you for your understanding, patience, and support during this difficult time.

Please accept our deepest gratitude for all you do to support White Bird.

"Rousing and incisive."—The New York Times

Camille A. Brown returns to White Bird with ink, which celebrates the rituals, gestural vocabulary and traditions that remain ingrained within the lineage of the African Diaspora. ink is the third part of Brown's trilogy, which includes Mr. TOL E. RAncE (2012) and BLACK GIRL: Linguistic Play (2015). Camille and her company of seven dancers and four musicians create a thrilling energy, through dance and music, in examining the Black life that is often appropriated, rewritten, or silenced.

3 SHOWS
