The 20th anniversary season from White Bird Dance soars with cutting-edge performance groups, and this three-show package for 2017-2018 gives you a sample of some of the very best at Newmark Theatre and Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall in Portland. Kicking off this special celebration is Complexions, the powerfully athletic troupe that mixes ballet and hip hop into fresh, exciting works, like the piece they'll be performing to the music of J.S. Bach and David Bowie. Next up is Urban Bush Women with "Hair and Other Stories", exploring race, gender, identity and more in the company's signature modern style. Then, New York-based Ballet Hispanico, the innovative Latino dance specialists, famed for their trademark "invention, humor and spontaneity" ("The New York Times"), stage an exciting new program by a trio of talented female choreographers.
