Due to many of our shows selling out- which is great!- it has become necessary to implement the following policies:

- We are unable to refund tickets once they are purchased for any reason. If you purchase tickets and then are unable to use them, we cannot refund them or transfer them to another date. This applies to arriving late to the theater, getting sick, purchasing tickets for the wrong show, purchasing too many tickets, etc. However, you are welcome to give them to a loved one!

- Many of our shows sell out! Any tickets that go unclaimed 5 minutes before curtain will be sold to someone on our waiting list. Therefore, make sure you allow plenty of time for travelling to the theater and for parking.

- It is best to purchase tickets presale to guarantee a seat! In the event of a sold out show, a waiting list for unclaimed tickets will be started 30 minutes prior to curtain. Only shows with seats unsold will have tickets available at the door.

- When you purchase tickets to an A-WOL show, we love you even more than we do already.

Art in the Dark: By the Light of a Different Moon

ART in the DARK 2016: By the Light of a Different Moon 

Featuring Live Music by Dirty Elegance

August 14, 2016 - SUNDAY

SEATING and pre-show concert OPENS AT 7:30PM (+ CONCESSIONS)

SHOW BEGINS AT DARK (~8:30 OR 8:45PM)

Under the Trees at Mary S Young Park, West Linn, OR Located on Hwy 43 (2 miles north of I-205, Exit 8 or 2 miles south of Marylhurst Univ)

Suspended in trees, surrounded by beauty and illuminated by the stars... This year's show, By the Light of a Different Moon is a show about the giving of light in a world separate from our own; where Moon Queens dictate, Wanderers emerge, the Veiled welcome strange beings, the Watch is on guard and the Peacekeepers bring everyone together. Set to a commissioned soundtrack played live by Dirty Elegance, experience an evening of aerial theater as life of another kind teaches us what it means to love, accept and find meaning from the light of a different moon.  As always, this production is packed full of traditional and invented aerial apparatus, athletic and technical dance movement and acrobatics. 

Live Music: Dirty Elegance playing a pre-show concert as well as a full live performance throughout the entire show. 

A-WOL's Art in the Dark annual performance is a fantastical, illuminated, full-length, evening production set in a unique and rare outdoor theater style setting.  Transforming a dirt plot into a performance spot, each show is packed with the flavor of the Northwest and a wonderful taste of the talent this area has to offer!   Come see why A-WOL grabbed the attention of OPB's "Oregon Art Beat" during the 2012 season! Last year's show sold out entirely - get your ticket early.

Art in the Dark is enjoyed by all ages.

Groovin Greenhouse

Polaris Dance Theatre presents Groovin’ Greenhouse, a series of world premiere dance works. Polaris, along with guest dance companies from every corner of Portland, are working with established and emerging Portland choreographers to present brand new dance works in the Polaris Studio Theatre. This evening features Polaris Dance Theatre with a world premiere by Artistic Director and resident Choreographer Robert Guitron. Guitron and his company play with innovative illumination and shadow, themes of love, loss and loneliness and grapple with identifying the mix of gifts from others that make us who we are. From full cast to intimate duet, this diverse company pulls at heartstrings and demands its audience members to think in a different way. Joining Polaris this evening is also A-WOL Dance Collective. A-WOL will perform a new work titled Emergence, the process of coming into view or becoming exposed after being concealed. This innovative new piece will incorporate aerial silks and ropes.
