REJOICE! DIASPORA DANCE THEATER presents
June 24 – 27 at Portland Playhouse
A celebration of life, triumph and humanity imbued with Brazilian music. ALEGRIA! continues with the Rejoice! tradition by fusing the joyful expressions of folklore, Brazilian, Caribbean, and contemporary dance to form "contemporary folklore."
The four evenings will be filled with choreographic works by Oluyinka Akinjiola, Uriah Boyd, Dar Vejon Jones, Jamie Minkus and Portland Playhouse’s own Andrea Whittle. We're reviving our signature piece “Phenomenally,” reset for the Portland Playhouse stage, featuring special guests and new interpretations of Maya Angelou's provocative poetry.
Musical guests include Andy Sterling and Rudy Slizewski as well as members of Popgoji. Prepare to travel towards the equator as they set the score for a Brazilian soundtrack connecting an evening of dance. Lighting design and technical direction will be done by the amazing Robin Greenwood.
Make sure to get your tickets early!
