Fertile Ground Festival
Sunday, January 28
"Portland’s annual new works festival combines explorations in both music and dance. Some of the work is fully staged and ready for prime time. Other performances capture theater and dance works in progress. But the heat of brand-new art, no matter its state, has helped warm the winter here since 2009, and its graduates have gone on to glory outside the festival format. ." - Oregon Arts Watch
What can be said about Fertile Ground? Just about anything! This inclusive incubator for brand-new locally-grown art includes plays, musicals, dance pieces and plenty of other events that may defy description (and often exceed even their creators’ expectations). This is your chance to dig deeper into Portland’s performance world, watch workshop performances before they get picked up for full production, tune into emerging playwrights’ unique voices and see new faces in the spotlight. Pick and choose individual shows, or spring for a festival pass to catch them all!
