(a)merging

AARON SPENCER
7:30 pm Fridays-Sundays, Jan. 17-26., Friday January 17 | $15-$20.
 
The 24-year-old Northwest Dance Project member continues to scout Portland for its brightest dance talent. This is the second installment of Matheis’ series (a)merging—14 pieces, seven per show, over two weekends. She takes less control here than she did in her Alchemy show last year, instead just providing a platform for newbies and a few veterans. The result will likely be rawer and more experimental—and probably less polished—but her lineup has some standouts that will make the weaker pieces worth the gamble. Among them, Megan McCarthy and Patrick Kilbane, who first worked together in Alchemy, remix their classical ballet training into something bizarre. Kate Rafter, a local up-and-comer, will present a piece she calls “a pop-up dance thingy with a general focus on risk and interactivity.” The lineup changes the second weekend to include Portland Festival Ballet dancer Emily Schultz and Princess Grace Award winner Katie Scherman, among others. The full lineups are on amerging2014.com, which you should check out if you’re not a gambler.
