Portland’s renowned dance troupe brings its breathtaking production “Reverie” to Bend on Thursday, November 13 at 7:30 pm. Led by Emmy-winning choreographers Jamey Hampton and Ashley Roland, BodyVox combines dance, theater and film into an inventive creation rich in imagery, athleticism and humor.
With seven dancers, Roland considers “Reverie” both complex and refreshingly simple. “The show is inspired by the impressionist era and builds from an overriding belief in the power of beauty.” Hampton observed that “a program with beauty as its central theme is a powerful statement: art must prevail; humanity must prevail; culture, knowledge and freedom of expression must prevail. We named the program ‘Reverie’ because beauty can sweep us up and carry us away.”
