NW Dance Project: Boléro + Billie, December 7, 8 & 9
NW Dance Project (“Portland’s Best Dance Company” 2015-17 Willamette Week Readers’ Poll) presents Boléro + Billie, a fresh take on their annual winter shows suitable for the whole family. Of course, this is not your typical holiday show…
Half a dozen of NW Dance Project’s talented and adventurous company dancers (William Couture, Kody Jauron, Elijah Labay, Lindsey McGill, Franco Nieto, and Andrea Parson) looked to the music of Billie Holiday for inspiration and for transformation, and then paired their unique creations with Resident Choreographer Ihsan Rustem’s riveting Boléro (reviewed by Oregon Arts Watch as “bright and witty…rescued from the graveyard of pop-culture banality and restored affectionately to its pedestal of seductively oddball expressionism”) to craft a winter show that will thrill and delight the hearts of all.
