The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace

Last performed in 2013 – the world premiere of Nell Shipman’s choreography to Karl Jenkins’ superb score dedicated to the victims of the Kosovo crisis – this work speaks profoundly to the world’s issues today. The production incorporates music, dance, and the stories of community members who have survived conflict in war zones and elsewhere – and who have come to a place peaceful enough to for their voices to be heard and shared. This year, we are proud to be working in collaboration with The Telling Room on this very meaningful work. In Portland Ballet’s repertoire of work, this piece sits close to the heart.
