In a historic first, push/FOLD and the Portland Symphonic Choir team up to bring to you the world premiere of ‘Vespers’!
From award-winning composer and choreographer Samuel Hobbs alongside Dr. Alissa Deeter and the 80-member Portland Symphonic Choir, ‘Vespers’ is an exceptional fusion of virtuosic dance and live, choral brilliance. Join us for an evening of unparalleled beauty, emotion, and an immersive surround experience of movement and the human voice.
“… was simply poetic… the scenes looked like paintings.” ~ Jamuna Chiarini (Oregon ArtsWatch)
Celebrated for their powerful, athletic style that reveals relatable, abstract storylines, push/FOLD creates dance “filled with vulnerability and humanity… full of nuances and beauty.” (Oregon ArtsWatch). 'Vespers' is a departure from push/FOLD's traditional work, and a first for choreographer Samuel Hobbs who normally composes the music for each of their works.
Show-length: ~60 minutes without an intermission.
** Artist-talks and Q&A follow each performance. **
