Compagnie Maguy Marin at White Bird

The contemporary dance company, Compagnie Maguy Marin, is one of the most renowned in France. This fall, White Bird Dance brings the company to perform in Portland, Oregon – the French group’s only U.S. stop on their Americas tour.

The performance, Salves, set for Oct. 10-12 at Newmark Theater, is described as “a rollercoaster of a work that leads the audience through a journey of darkness and light, of mystery and suspense – and outrageous humor.

Filled with one surprise after the next, Marin’s highly theatrical piece conjures up Rod Serling’s famous introduction to The Twilight Zone, ‘You’re moving into a land of shadow and substance, of things and ideas.’”

New York Magazine calls the show, “Spellbinding, nerve-racking, and a thing of beauty.”
