Union PDX – Festival of Contemporary Dance
November 18, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - November 20, 2022 @ 7:30 pm
Portland’s push/FOLD brings world and Portland premiere works to our city by local, national, and international contemporary dance artists for this year’s Union PDX – Festival:22! This monumental festival of contemporary dance packs performances (including two world premieres and four Portland premieres), audience talk-backs, masterclasses, professional development workshops (free), and outreach for young dancers (free) into four days, November 17-20.
Featuring contemporary dance performances and masterclasses in the genres of West-African and Afro-Brazilian, Bharatanatyam, Contemporary Ballet, and Contemporary dance, this year’s festival hosts artists based in Israel, Denmark, and Las Vegas who will perform and teach alongside Portland’s Makino Hayashi, Sweta Ravisankar (Sarada Kala Nilayam), and push/FOLD’s Samuel Hobbs.
All of the performances are kid-friendly and a wonderful way for young people to be exposed to contemporary dance.
