(A few) Recent-Past Shows
Tidal May 13th, 2016
Contemporary-fusion dance theater inspired by our inner and outer watery worlds with an original musical score performed live. Developed by dancer/musician Danielle Elizabeth, this is a premiere 2016 work from Portland based Evening Star Collective, a group of performing artists dedicated to multi-genre and multi-media collaborative work. The show will feature 10 solo and group choreographies with vocal and percussive arrangements for the dancers in dreamy aquatic melodies and odd-meters.
This show is unique amongst many dance endeavors in that the music was created specifically for and after the dance. Multi-instrumentalist musical director Paul Evans worked closely with each dancer to craft their sonic accompaniment. The band consists of a professional trio playing variety of winds, keys, and percussion instruments, drawing inspirations from Jazz as well as North African music.
Based on the rise and fall of the tides, concepts dive into the deep sea as well as journey to the celestial bodies that pull on our planet’s oceans. Inspired to create artwork that provokes environmental consciousness, the directors and cast of Tidal hope to perform this show a number of times this year, eventually donating a percentage of the profits to a conservation organization working to support the Ocean.
