Returning for the 10th year, Polaris Dance Theatre presents Groovin’ Greenhouse, a program filled with an array of emerging and established Portland-area dance artists, companies and organizations. This event is focused on bringing the Portland dance community together under one roof. Each performance will include work by one or more of Polaris’ companies including the Polaris Company, ELa FaLa Collective, and Polaris Junior + NEO Youth Companies. The closing night performance includes the Polaris Company and ELa FaLa Collective. Artistic Directors, Robert Guitron and Barbara Lima, will merge together for the first time to curate an innovative, dance theatre inspired creation. Each performance will be a new work involving interactions between dancers, audience members, and directors as they create a performance piece before your eyes. This process will include vocal and physical prompts, music and lighting cues, and more. The traditional rules are broken as the ideas of performer and audience member are blurred. This piece is playful and process oriented, a unique experience you don’t want to miss! This performance is shared with NW
Fusion, a youth company located in Tigard, OR under the direction of Brad Hampton. These talented dancers perform excerpts of their repertoire for the 2019-2020 season. Their pieces vary in style and are guaranteed not to disappoint. Their performance showcases the company’s versatility and athleticism while demonstrating their strong ability to bring the audience in with their mesmerizing stage presence.
