Bold and Versatile Dance Company to Perform Original Work

The company will perform four pieces, including State of Matter choreographed by Ihsan Rustem, MemoryHouse choreographed by Artistic Director Sarah Slipper, and Drifting Thoughts choreographed by Patrick Delcroix. Program is subject to change.

State Of Matter premiered in 2010 and was the Audience Award winner at the 25th annual Hannover Choreographic Competition as well as the winner at the 2011 Sadler's Wells Global Dance Contest. MemoryHouse premiered in 2011 and Drifting Thoughts in 2013.

Under the leadership of Artistic Director Sarah Slipper, Northwest Dance Project has established itself as a bold and innovative contemporary dance company performing an all-original repertoire from an eclectic roster of accomplished choreographers as well as the most promising new talents in the field of dance. 

The company is classically trained, versatile, incredibly talented and a fearless collection of dynamic dancers. Northwest Dance Project performs and tours works from an extensive, all-original repertoire, collaborates with contemporary choreographers on new dance creations, and leads Dance Moves, an interactive community outreach program.
