New dance works from treasured Portland choreographers Sarah Slipper, Carla Mann, Minh Tran, Tracey Durbin, Kemba Shannon and Andrea Parson created and performed to the live evocative jazz of Blue Cranes + Al's studio-made, sweet wassail and special treatsÂ… About Northwest Dance Project: Founded in Portland in 2004 by award-winning choreographer Sarah Slipper, Northwest Dance Project has become a leader in the creation and premiere of inspired new dance works with 100 original contemporary ballet works from international choreographers. NWDP's dynamic, classically-trained company has been described as "virtually flawless," "fierce" and "beautiful." The Northwest Dance Project is housed in the hip Mississippi District in the historic Mississippi Ballroom. www.nwdanceproject.org About Blue Cranes: Hailing from the fertile scene of Portland, the Blue cranes create music that is as invigorating as it is disarming with influences from rock and the indie scene but with a solid foundation in the vocabulary of jazz. The quintet (alto and tenor saxophones, upright bass, keyboardist and drummer) has released three full length albums to date and the band members also share their chops with such notable bands such as The Decemberists, The Stolen Sweets, Rebecca Gates, Pete Krebs, Dirty Mittens, National Flower and Darrell Grant and others.
