Rainbow Dance Theatre returns to the Smith Fine Arts Series with 20 in 2020, a new repertory show marking RDT’s 20-year anniversary in 2020 as an Oregon-based dance company. This event will mark RDT’s first public performance since March 2020, when theaters throughout the world shut down, halting RDT’s 20-year anniversary tour. Returning to the stage with a high-powered dance retrospective, 20 in 2020 features works highlighting the sometimes whimsical, often poignant collaborative choreography of artistic directors Valerie Bergman and Darryl Thomas. During this high-impact performance, West African Dance, Haitian Dance, Hip Hop, and Martial Arts fuse with American Modern Dance to reflect diverse cultural influences. Interactive full-stage sets, 3-D backdrops, and lavish costuming add a unique visual element that transforms the dance performance into an entertaining and provocative theatrical event.
