A Celebration of Women in Dance

White Bird is flying into its 21st season, having kicked off with Pilobolus’ incredible Come to Your Senses program that drew the White Bird community in with strength, finesse and eloquent grace. Not only was Pilobolus the launch of our season, but it was the beginning of a year dedicated to celebrating and supporting women in dance. After our 20th season, which focused on presenting diverse companies led by people of color, we decided to continue in the spirit of uplifting audiences with movement by presenting companies with strong women at their helm.

This season, we are proud to celebrate: 

Renee Jaworski, Co-Artistic Director of Pilobolus

Lucy Guerin, Founder and Artistic Director of Lucy Guerin

Natalia Hills, Choreographer, Tangueros Del Sur

Wang Yuanyuan, Founder Artistic Director of Beijing Dance Theater

Marie Chouinard, Founder and Artistic Director of Compagnie Marie Chouinard

Joan Myers Brown, Founder and Artistic Director of Philadanco

Pre-Tangueros Del Sur Tango Performance!

If it’s not exciting enough that world-renowned Tango company Tangueros Del Sur is making their west coast debut here in Portland, we’ve added an extra bonus for even more fun!

Alex Krebs, Portland’s own Tango star and owner of Tango Berretin, will be performing with partner Hannah Grenfell in the Arlene Schnitzer lobby prior to the performance of Tangueros Del Sur on November 14.

Krebs began dancing Argentine Tango in 1997 and teaching worldwide since 1998, including performances in Buenos Aires.  He has run his all-Argentine tango studio, Tango Berretin, in Portland, Oregon since 2001 and has also studied the bandoneon since 2001. Alex plays bandoneon and directs his own tango orchestra, The Alex Krebs Tango Sextet, as well as plays with Tango Pacifico and others.
