BODYVOX Presents THE SPIN
THE SPIN returns to thrill audiences, blending dance and the spontaneity of improvisation with a game show wheel thrown into the mix. Twenty possible dances will be rehearsed, costumes prepped, and dancers ready to take the stage each time the wheel lands.
“THE SPIN is lightning in a bottle, controlled chaos, and mischievous mayhem,” said Jamey Hampton, Co-Artistic Director of BODYVOX. “Twenty dances learned by the artists of BODYVOX, randomly chosen by the audience as they spin the wheel. It’s a chance operation, a spontaneous program that never repeats itself!”
Running two consecutive weekends, April 6-8 and 13-15, 2023 at 7:30 pm each evening at the BODYVOX Dance Center, THE SPIN offers a unique combination of dance, theater, and comedy at the hands of fate. Patrons can experience a dance performance that is composed on the spot each evening through audience participation.
Led by Emmy Award-winning choreographers Jamey Hampton and Ashley Roland, BODYVOX is known for its visual virtuosity, distinctive wit and unique ability to combine dance, theater and film into breathtaking productions rich in imagery, athleticism and humor. Since its founding in 1997, BODYVOX has toured to critical acclaim on stages around the world, developed award winning short films, 33 original shows and 3 operas, featuring over 270 original dances.
Based in Portland, Oregon, BODYVOX’s movement surges from a fascination with the endless possibilities of the human body in motion, informed by years of cross training and layers of experience. Hampton and Roland are distinguished artists on the world stage, formed by their years working as creators and performers with innovative dance companies Momix, ISO Dance, and Pilobolus. BODYVOX builds upon this tradition of excellence with a unique voice that is equally influenced by its Northwest roots and world view.
