Newmark Theatre


World Premiere - Sarah Slipper
World Premiere - Cayetano Soto

Artistic Director Sarah Slipper’s distinctly dark, theatrical, and vivid choreography takes on Henrik Ibsen’s incomparable 19th century play, Hedda Gabler, a classic of realism and world drama, with an original score by Owen Belton, and a striking set by Luis Crespo.

For the first time since his US choreographic debut with NW Dance Project in 2007, world renowned choreographer Cayetano Soto, Ballet BC Resident Choreographer, makes his way back to unveil a full-company work filled with whimsy and pounds of pink.

Arts for All tickets (as available - limit 2, cash only) at theater box office beginning at 7:00pm each performance evening. ID required.

About NW Dance Project (Company):

NW Dance Project was founded in Portland in 2004 by acclaimed dancer, mentor and choreographer Sarah Slipper. NW Dance Project is dedicated to the creation and performance of innovative, new contemporary dance works from established and emerging dancemakers created in an open and artistically stimulating environment. NW Dance Project has fostered the creation of over 250 original contemporary dance works to date, premiering them all in Portland before touring regionally, nationally, and internationally. Our dedication to providing dancers and dance makers the resources and creative room needed to realize new, inspired dance works led Dance International Magazine to proclaim that we are “changing the way dance is created” and that NW Dance Project has become “a laboratory, factory and repository for risk-taking new works from the next generation of choreographers from Europe and North America.” Four of NW Dance Project’s classically-trained and uniquely talented dancers have won Princess Grace Awards while with the company (given to only six dancers annually) and our dancers were referred to as “some of the best dancers you will ever see” by the Calgary Herald. The New Yorker called NW Dance Project “a company of slick, skilled dancers” before our recent Jacob’s Pillow performances (the most renowned dance festival in the country). The Oregonian said we are “an essential part of the city’s arts scene”, and Oregon Public Broadcasting  complimented us as “the it company…one of the most dynamic dance troupes in the country.”
