NW Dance Project is having a major moment—in the US and beyond. As their biggest show of the season opens, artistic director Sarah Slipper talks about tough times for Portland dance, and why there’s so much hope for its future.
Author Lauren Kessler reflects on a year of the ballet in her latest book about dance, dreams, and sheer determination. She tells Portland Monthly what it's like to have your childhood dream come true (after 40 years).
It's warm and dry inside, Portland—and we've got just the ticket! This weekend, it's George Balanchine's The Nutcracker, the Mystery Box Show's sexy storytelling, ZooZoo, ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons, and the English Beat.
