03/27/2017

CORVALLIS, Ore. –NW Dance Project will present an evening of contemporary dance at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 14, at Oregon State University.

Each season, the professional company based at NW Dance Project performs a new series that includes appearances in the Portland area as well as tours around the state and across the country. The OSU performance will be held in the LaSells Stewart Center, 875 S.W. 26th Street.

The event is part of “SAC Presents,” a visual and performing arts events series sponsored by the School of Arts and Communication in the OSU College of Liberal Arts.

Founded in Portland in 2004 by acclaimed dancer and choreographer Sarah Slipper, NW Dance Project is dedicated to the creation and performance of innovative, contemporary dance works from established and emerging dance makers in an open and artistically stimulating environment.

NW Dance Project has fostered the creation and premier of more than 190 original contemporary dance works and engages individuals and communities with dance through accessible performances by the company, studio sessions, dance samplers, outdoor performances, special events master classes and more.

Tickets are $25 and $30 for main floor seats and $10 for limited balcony seating; all seats are reserved. Free tickets are available to currently enrolled OSU students, one per person. Tickets are available online at http://liberalarts.oregonstate.edu/SACpresents, at The LaSells Stewart Center from noon to 5 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, and at the door starting at 6:30 p.m. the night of the performance.
