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.
