Collaborating with a group of some of Portland’s most compelling performers, Linda Austin has created a large ensemble performance score for people whose performing experience runs the gamut from zero to professional. Linda and her collaborators have invited a diverse group of 18 community participants to learn, perform, and find pleasure in a tender and richly patterned tapestry of group behaviors including singing, walking, bell-ringing, and yes, dancing. Informal rituals, texts, songs and interactions with everyday objects generate a web of transitory relationships that are both celebrated and mourned. The 18 additional citizen performers will learn the material in a series of workshop/rehearsals that begin a week before opening night!

The last bell rings for you is Chapter 2 in Linda Austin’s (Un)Made dance triptych, which began in 2015 with the (Un)Made Solo Relay Series and will culminate with an ensemble piece called world, a world in 2017.
