push/FOLD presents the fifth annual Union PDX - Festival of Contemporary Dance! This year, Festival:23 shares two world premiere works and two Portland premieres by local, national, and international contemporary artists in the genres of Street, Bharatanatyam, Contemporary Break, and Contemporary dance styles:
Opening on November 16, the full festival returns with our student outreach performance, three public performances over the weekend, six professional-level masterclasses taught by the festival artists, and two professional development workshops.
Stay with us after the show on November 17 & 18 as we chat with the artists in a facilitated Q&A. Learn about their process and artistic developments, features of their work, and experiences as professional artists navigating their communities and the world today.
Join us on November 19 for our closing Festival Soirée to chat and mingle with the artists and celebrate the vitality of dance within Portland.
