Nude dancers are coming. When Lincoln Hall, the former home of the White Bird/PSU Dance series began construction in 2008, it turned out to be a creativity-stirring constraint. White Bird Uncaged began its two-year life (2009-10 is the second and final season) in which it spreads its wings all over town, recruiting a total of eight guest dance companies to perform at various Portland locations. Ushering in this season is Montreal-based choreographer Daniel Léveillé Danse, whose blueprints structure the movements of eight nude dancers. Yes, that's nude dancers, as in, you can see their birthmarks. But of course, "Léveillé avoids sensationalism and voyeuristic temptation by accentuating the physical strength and forcefulness." It's about muscle, not skin.
