Polaris Dance Theatre presents Groovin’ Greenhouse, a series of world premiere dance works. Polaris, along with guest dance companies from every corner of Portland, are working with established and emerging Portland choreographers to present brand new dance works in the Polaris Studio Theatre. This evening features Polaris Dance Theatre with a world premiere by Artistic Director and resident choreographer Robert Guitron. Guitron and his company play with innovative illumination and shadow, themes of love, loss and loneliness and grapple with identifying the mix of gifts from others that make us who we are. From full cast to intimate duet, this diverse company pulls at heartstrings and demands its audience members to think in a different way. This evening also features the inspiring Polaris Junior Company, directed by M’Liss Quinnly. These young, energetic and talented dancers again bring new work to the festival choreographed by M’Liss Quinnly and guest choreographer Jocelyn Edelstein.
