Thumbnail for - Risk/Reward: Festival of New Performance

While most local theaters and dance companies go dark for the summer, the Risk/Reward Festival offers Portland a firework display of some of the brightest, loudest, and wildest offerings for the stage, cutting across theater, dance, performance art, and music. “We choose based on which ideas fascinate us the most,” says Jerry Tischleder, the festival director, of selecting the six acts from Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver, British Columbia. “Some of the artists will come up with something out of the blue that’s totally amazing, and some will fall flat on their face.”


If “risk” is half of the name and part of the bargain, strong bets for the other half are Vancouver dancer Joshua Martin, who mixes hip-hop with highly athletic contemporary movement, and the Satori Group, one of Seattle’s most exciting theater ensembles, which will take us on a song cycle delving into the American South
