White Bird


To bring the best Portland-based, regional, national and international dance companies to Portland through presenting established and emerging companies and choreographers and commissioning new work from regional and national artists.

Bottom Line for Portland

White Bird’s major goal is to expand and diversify its audience and donors. This past season, it reached more than 175 new ticket buyers from Portland’s Latino communities, and in partnership with the Portland Timbers, more than 300 new individuals for its circus show, Timber! 

“I have the opportunity to travel the world, and everywhere I go I hear about the incredible White Bird program and how Portland, Oregon, is so significant in the concert dance world. What Paul and Walter have given to the community is unmatched anywhere.” —Michael Curry, production designer and puppet-maker
