A Midsummer Night at the Savoy

Midsummer Night at the Savoy

Four choreographers, one story line, plus a community ensemble will bring the energy of Harlem to Portland through a distinctive performance examining spaces that allowed African American arts to flourish and marinate in U.S. history.

Imagine Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream as a poetic through line with a recreated set of the Savoy Ballroom, the first integrated ballroom in the country and an artistic incubator in Harlem. Experience this twist on Shakespeare and the contributions of artists of color throughout history.
