BodyVox Dance and chamber music Northwest Present NINETEEN*TWENTY

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

NINETEEN*TWENTY is a deep exploration of the heart and soul of the 1920s. Diving into the explosion of creativity in music, art and dance of this incredible era, it will translate converging cultural forces into a performance of lively, vibrant dance and imaginative, emotive music that is deeply theatrical, immensely physical and undeniably entertaining. Delighting in grit and glitz with a dazzling, dazzling and energetic show, the cast of 11 dancers and seven musicians of NINETEEN*TWENTY will bring the rise and fall of this iconic golden age to life!

Over 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. This is the second collaboration that includes the energetic Akropolis Reed Quintet. The original production was scheduled to premiere on 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 to host local arts organizations.

“NINETEEN*TWENTY resides in this unprecedented era of innovation and creativity,” said Jamey Hampton and Ashley Roland, artistic directors of BodyVox. “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 going on for a while We were about to premiere it in 2020 when the pandemic shut everything down It has been a joy to bring the show to life, and we are absolutely thrilled to premiere this work in the new Patricia Reser Center for the Arts!”
