Northwest Dance Project Touring Repertoire

All works are original and created especially for Northwest Dance Project.

After the Shake
Choreographer / Sarah Slipper
Premiere / 2014
“Slipper’s piece makes the most of the Shakers’ trademark ecstatic movement, creating vivid tableaux of rings of the faithful, quivering with exultation, and women in blood red dresses swinging brooms like clock pendulums…the choreographer’s dramatic balletic forms and thoughtful partnering twists are always interesting to watch."

This Time Tomorrow
Choreographer / Danielle Agami
Premiere / 2013
“a success, the cream of the crop, quirky and wryly funny… has wit, twisted elegance, and a sophisticated sense of how dance works with music and silence — we need to see more of this kind of work in its abstract evocations of deeply felt, silent imprisonment, here unpacked with convincing creative freedom of nuanced expression.”

Casual Act

Choreographer / Sarah Slipper
Premiere / 2013
"an intense and beguiling abstraction from Harold Pinter’s play “Betrayal" almost forgot the dancers weren’t expressing themselves with language, as their movements so clearly and beautifully relay the drama of the story."


Choreographer / Lucas Crandall
Premiere / 2008
"gracefully athletic ballet"


Choreographer / Patrick Delcroix
Premiere / 2012
"vibrant colors in motion...we see the very fullest these relations in movement can intertwine and take us."


Choreographer / Sarah Slipper
Premiere / 2012
"sharp and dramatic… apocalyptic dystopia…an urban wasteland with those moving, seeking protection in concert together."

Trace in Loss

Choreographer / Alex Soares
Premiere / 2012
"awesome, dynamic, industrial, technical, electric ghost-like images… really did knock my socks off.”

Not I

Choreographer / Sarah Slipper
Premiere / 2009
"a strenuously awkward and entirely engrossing performance - a remarkably physical characterization of dissolution -- perhaps dementia, perhaps death itself."

Mother Tongue

Choreographer / Ihsan Rustem
Premiere / 2012
"a model of contemporary choreography – a piece very much of its own time but also fiercely focused and sure of itself."


Choreographer / Wen Wei Wang
Premiere / 2009
"the highlight of the show...a small feast of images."
State Of Matter
Choreographer / Ihsan Rustem
Premiere / 2010
Audience Award winner - 25th annual Hannover Choreographic Competition
Winner - 2011 Sadler's Wells Global Dance Contest
"impetus for some propulsive, flexed foot movement, following an opening duet - beautifully danced ... floating beauty"

Drifting Thoughts
Choreographer / Patrick Delcroix
Premiere / 2013
"Patrick Delcroix's third work for the company, Drifting Thoughts, has a bit of a gone-native, science-fiction feel to it, like an eqinoxial revel interrupted here and there by a brilliant Bikini Atoll flash of destruction."

Choreographer / Sarah Slipper
Premiere / 2011
“the showstopper…lyrically tough and sensuously tender…has a barely submerged dramatic subtext, an emotional tension with fractured hints of narrative. It's certainly about a love relationship, and maybe about the droning of domesticity, and clearly about romantic sex.”

A Fine Balance
Finalist for the Benois de la Danse award, performed at the award's Bolshoi Theatre gala.
Choreographer / Sarah Slipper
Premiere / 2004
"This is what dance should be...she found the point at which the form, of dance (steps, technique, feet, performance) combine to create a work of art."
