Event website

Created by #vmog MJ Emerson, Eclipse uses dance to intertwine the stories of Alice in Wonderland, the Prodigal son, and a War Veteran coming home. This one act show is a favorite of the Portland community, using music from Dark Side of the Moon, Emerson has created a stark look at the way people’s lives and stories connect.

Emerging director Arrin Rhinehardt brings the story of Helen of Troy to the stage with original dance pieces in this one act show. Telling traditional stories from the perspective of those most harmed, the rage of the victims and the gods’ pettiness inspires Helen to recruit rebels to fight against the patriarchal God hierarchy.

Thursday, August 1 at 7:30pm is our purely donation based, Pay-What-You-Can night. 💜 Please RSVP to
