Kaleidoscope of Boogies: An Art Opening & Creative Collaboration

  • Wild Hearts Wellness 4230 Northeast Fremont Street Portland, OR, 97213 United States (map)

Please join us for a creative collaboration and art opening. Price = FREE. 

Photos and beer go all night (til 8). Live music jams from 6:00-7:30 with two dance intermissions at 6:30 & 7:15.

Festivities include:
Beer by Sidewalk Brewing - On tap: a Citrus Saison & "What Coast" Hazy IPA. Made up of three passionate home-brewers who pump out 30 gallon batches of beer from a basement garage (and sidewalk) in SE Portland.  Sidewalk prides itself on testing out new yeasts, hops and grains in almost ever batch, brewing styles that range from Belgian, German, American and everything in between;

Dance performances by Jana Kristi Zahler & Da Boss (at 6:30 and 7:15)- Jana and Patsy have been collaborating together for 10 years now. Exploring movement through character studies, dance theater and visceral expression are some of the many themes in their work. They are excited to share dance with you;

Live music by "Lee & the Babbs" (aka John Lusk Babbott & Lee Barbara) (6:00-7:15)- acoustic guitarists and vocalists supreme;

and Photography by Taran Nadler - Taran has been a dabbling photographer for seven years. Growing up with a mom who would absolutely never miss an opportunity to dance and moved with clearly unabashed abandon helped remind Taran that movement is vital, even though for long stretches of time we humans seem to lose touch with how to feel and connect with all of the heads, shoulders knees and toes that give us our cranky and perfect containers.Dance is the most direct path Taran knows to get you instantly in touch with your physical form. Melding photography and dance is a blend of two loves and unsurprisingly joyful.
