Description

White Bird Uncaged is delighted to present the return of Kidd Pivot Frankfurt RM and Crystal Pite’s new work Dark Matters at the Newmark Theatre, Portland Center for the Performing Arts. Kidd Pivot’s Lost Action launched White Bird Uncaged in Fall 2008, and Portland audiences discovered in Pite one of Canada’s most exciting and inventive choreographers. Emerging from Pite’s fascination with the unseen forces at work on mind and body, Dark Matters is a brilliant combination of lifelike puppetry and dynamic movement, featuring a haunting original score from long-time collaborator Owen Belton.

The performance runs two hours with an intermission.
