Moving History: Portland Contemporary Dance Past and Present
By Eric Nordstrom (2017)
Working with interviews from founding company members and archival performance footage, Nordstrom explores how today’s dancers stand on the shoulders of decades of performers and choreographers who established Portland’s flourishing community. Beginning with the inception of the Portland Dance Theater and continuing through the Reed College Summer Dance Workshop, Art Quake, Conduit, Performance Works NW, and White Bird, among many, Nordstrom’s film celebrates the companies and individuals that have shaped contemporary dance in Portland.
The screening is FREE and open to the public. Fir Acres Theatre Main Stage
