Table of Contents at CENTRL Office, Portland, Oregon
In April 2016, Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre/Northwest relaunched a 2015 favorite: Table of Contents.
Table of Contents performers animated CENTRL Office, in the Pearl District of Portland, Oregon. This time Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre/Northwest/Northwest (HDDT/NW) added more show times with 7:30pm and 9:00pm performances on April 15 and 16, 2016. HDDT/NW company dancers William Jay, Theresa “Toogie” Barcelo, Conrad Kaczor, Kiel Moton, Brittany DeLano, and Carly Ostergaard, along with actress Sarah DeGrave create an immersive experience for audiences based on the distinct ingredients of this unconventional office space. The entire space was consumed by live music performed by legendary Portland jazz artist, Tom Grant.
Table of Contents was the collaboration between the flexible, full-service workspace, CENTRL Office, and the HDDT/NW artists. The site-specific performance highlighted the natural, and sometimes un-natural, contemporary working environments through flexibility and investigation. This story-telling performance fulfilled HDDT/NW’s mission by making ordinary places extraordinary through bold choreography. It also built upon CENTRL Office’s commitment of bringing together and building partnerships within the community.
