Illum — World Premiere

The Reser & Livestream

February 23-26

push/FOLD brings the world-premiere work 'Illum' to the incredible Patricia Reser Center for the Arts this February in Beaverton, Oregon. Filled with ethereal moodscapes, high-impact and sweeping movement, floorwork, and dynamic partnering, ‘Illum’ (Latin: ‘it’ or ‘thing’) explores home, acceptance, and belonging through a multi-dimensional lens of form and transcendence.

This performance features the show-titled work 'Illum' alongside a selection from our body of work.
