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
olaris Company, ELa FaLa Collective, and Polaris Junior + NEO Youth Companies. This 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 playful and process-oriented piece is an unique experience you don’t want to miss! This program is shared with ELXR Dance Company, a theatrical dance company located in Portland. They will present an excerpt from their full length production, Shipwreck’d. Shipwreck’d tells a story of passengers boarding a ship for an adventure only to find themselves in the middle of a catastrophic crash on an island far from civilization. The dancers present a story of disaster, bravery and survival.
