Method Dance hits the Theatre Northwest stage with Bodies in Isolation

With the ongoing COVID-19 crisis many performing arts organizations have had to wait patiently to pursue live performances. Method Dance Society is very excited to announce that they will finally be able to launch their live performance, Bodies in Isolation, this October at Theatre Northwest.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be presenting live and working with Theater Northwest,” says Artistic Director and Choreographer Shelby Richardson. “Performing and live entertainment is such an important part of our lives, and for these professionals there is nothing like performing for a live audience.”

The performance is a reimagining of the project the company created last fall. As COVID-19 protocols shifted, Method was forced to cancel their live production last year and postpone all live performances until events were again permitted. Postponing the show gave Artistic Director Shelby Richardson some more time to reimagine the project and to incorporate other choreographers from the region including Melissa McCracken and Ashley Burmaster. The show will also incorporate some of the sensor technology they developed with Technical Director Jon Russell for a digital project the company undertook in June earlier this year (click here to view, password: method).

Bodies in Isolation will premiere at Theatre Northwest on October 7 at 7 p.m. and tickets are available through the Theatre Northwest website. We will be in compliance with all COVID-19 Health and Safety Protocols including, masking, social distancing and limited capacity seating.
