Polaris Dance Theatre

HEATHER WISNER
7:30 pm Thursday-Friday, 2 pm and 7:30 pm Saturday and 2 pm Sunday, Jan. 24-27., Thursday January 24 | $18-$32.
 
Portland pianist Michael Allen Harrison composed an original score, and will perform it live for the world-premiere contemporary dance performance of Snowman and the Red Thread. Polaris Dance Theatre company members and students will dance the piece, which is adapted from a children’s story written by Harrison and Polaris artistic director Robert Guitron. It’s about a child who, like The Wizard of Oz’s Dorothy, takes a fantastical journey through magical lands, only to see her home through new eyes once she returns. The twist in the narrative comes from the Chinese legend of the invisible red thread, which is said to connect youngsters to all the people who will eventually play important roles in their lives.
