SUMMER PREMIERES CAPTURES PORTLAND'S PRESS

June 21, 2022  |  News



Our Summer Premieres shows certainly caught the attention of Portland's arts and culture press!
In addition to being covered by KGW News, Portland Monthly Magazine and The Portland Tribune both ran preview features focusing on the premiere of Andrea Parson's ode to Little Women titled March.
Oregon Arts Watch sent dancer and journalist Amy Leona Havin to the show, who noted "NW Dance Project's most recent Summer Premieres provided three different yet whimsical works on June 10 and 11 at Lincoln Performance Hall. The evening featured a world premiere by former NW Dance Project dancer and recent
choreographer Andrea Parson as well as pieces by Artistic Director Sarah Slipper and visiting choreographer Yoshito Sakuraba...the performers displayed their excellent technique and refined composure throughout the three-part evening...left the audience exuberant and contemplative with multi-layered messages of whimsy, devotion, and dystopia—all appropriate and welcome themes for the burgeoning and uncertain future that we face."
