Made In Portland

June 6 – 9, 2024 | Newmark Theatre

We close the season with the second installment of Made in Portland lovingly crafted for the cultural explorers that make our city great. Like fine wine and food, ballet is ever evolving, and it is our pleasure to lead the way with three locally made world premieres. Adding to the OBT repertory this season are Louisville Ballet Resident Choreographer Andrea Schermoly, freelance choreographer named Dance Magazine’s Top 25 to Watch, Rebecca Margolick, and OBT’s own rising dance maker Makino Hayashi and producer Charlotte Nash. AND in a special partnership we are pleased to shine light on one of this city’s most respected student companies, The Jefferson Dancers.

So, take the road less traveled. Find your weird, and dive into these new works with us!
