BodyVox Dance & Chamber Music Northwest Present NINETEEN*TWENTY

BodyVox and Chamber Music Northwest, with Akropolis Reed Quintet, collaborate to present four performances of NINETEEN*TWENTY March 17 through 19 at Patricia Reser Center for the Performing Arts, in Beaverton.

NINETEEN*TWENTY is an exploration deep into the heart and soul of the 1920s. Delving into the explosion of creativity in music, art, and dance of this amazing era, it will translate converging cultural forces into a performance of vivid, vibrant dance and imaginative, emotive music that’s deeply theatrical, extremely physical, and unniably entertaining. Delighting in the grit and the glitz with a sweeping, dazzling, high-energy show, the cast of 11 dancers and seven musicians in NINETEEN*TWENTY will bring the rise and fall of this iconic golden era to life!

More than two years in the making, this project began as the ninth artistic collaboration between BodyVox and Chamber Music Northwest combining Chamber Music Northwest’s world-class music and BodyVox’s unique athleticism, humor, and rich imagery. It is the second collaboration that includes the energetic Akropolis Reed Quintet. The original production was set to premiere March 26, 2020, but was canceled due to the pandemic three weeks before opening. Now, the NINETEEN*TWENTY project will finally come to fruition. This long-awaited premiere is the facility’s second, and only multi-day, production hosting local arts organizations.

“NINETEEN*TWENTY resides in this unparalleled era of innovation and creativity,” said Jamey Hampton and Ashley Roland, BodyVox Artistic Directors. “In this production, our ninth collaboration with Chamber Music Northwest, we join forces with the extraordinary Akropolis Reed Quintet. Music, dance and visuals combine in this immersive production designed to take you on a journey through the 1920s. This production has been some time We were set to premiere it in 2020 when the pandemic shut everything down. !”
