Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre/Northwest’s newest work, Ragnarok, will captivate audiences as a modern interdisciplinary dance retelling of the Norse myth. Ragnarok is a tale of destruction and rebirth, and will take place at the abandoned Rexel/Taylor Electric Supply Building. The performance will highlight top talent featuring west coast artists from Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles and San Francisco as well as student performers from Portland State University’s Department of Dance.

The Rexel/Taylor building in SE Portland has been uninhabited since consumed by fire in 2006 and its de/reconstrucion is imminent. The building is currently exposed to the elements, its walls filled with years of elaborate and rugged graffiti, and it has become an attraction for local artists, photographers and filmmakers. This performance may be the last opportunity for the public to experience this statement of place before it is lost forever.

A free open dress rehearsal will also take place on Thursday, January 30 at 8:00PM.

    Are you kidding me! No one else? I love new dance works, I’ll watch all the dance I can get.

    Oh my goodness this sounds amazing. I love when a performance piece really let’s the performance space play an integral role.

    I’d love to see a dance show in this unique venue.

    As a student of mythology and an ex-instructor of breakdancing, I would love to see two of my passions come together in this beautiful piece of art. And I know my partner would enjoy it just as much.

    This sounds like a show not to be missed. My partner and I would LOVE IT!

    I have two children who love, love, love dance. My son, who’s 3, can sit quietly and watch people dancing for hours [only getting up during breaks to wash up and try some of the moves- he says “I know how to dance!”]. My daughter is 8, and they both are hoping for lessons soon :)

    In spite of their enchantment with dancing and dance, I’ve been reluctant to bring my family, with our small fellow, to an in-theater performance; this might be the right place for a little person to finally see a first in person show!

    If we won a few tickets, we three can go watch this amazing choreographer’s work!

    I’d like to win because this sounds like a blast!

    Yea! Vikings and dancing in an abandoned building? I’m down

  9. Greg A January 23, 2014 at 2:50 pm #

    I really have no idea what to expect with this, but I love Norse mythology and my girlfriend loves dancing.

  10. Sarah K January 23, 2014 at 3:13 pm #

    This sounds awesome and super interesting! I’d love to check it out.

  11. Sarah G January 23, 2014 at 3:58 pm #

    I cannot dance but it’s a joy to watch.

  12. Raven January 23, 2014 at 4:01 pm #

    My partner and I would love to take our little vikings to this event. They both love music and dance and are Norse as well. We live all the way in Salem so it would be a chance for us to get out as well!

  13. Bjoern January 23, 2014 at 5:29 pm #

    Awsome if I would win this!

  14. Elizabeth January 23, 2014 at 11:03 pm #

    I’d love to go. My boyfriend already commented and I agree: he loves Vikings and I love dance, so this would be a nice opportunity to attend a unique performance of mutual interest.

  15. Steve Ferrero January 24, 2014 at 7:03 am #

    I love this space. Took some great photos in here a few months ago. I’d love to see a dance performance here before it’s gone.

  16. Ditty Nicolaides January 24, 2014 at 8:58 am #

    Me! Me! Me! In my 70th year now, I’m still dancing, if mostly in my living room now. Would LOVE tickets!

  17. Nasheena January 24, 2014 at 9:46 am #

    I want to win these tickets because I REALLY want to bring my kids to watch this amazing event. We love everything about dance! Please pick me!

    Love this idea of taking dance into abandoned urban spaces! It will be sad to lose this landmark of street art in portland

  23. Margot B January 27, 2014 at 7:55 pm #

    Taylor Electric is a Portland landmark and a sanctuary for artists, rebels, and outcasts. The people of the city should celebrate and actively use these free spaces everyday, in new and exciting ways. From the ruined cracks of the urban landscape, culture erupts with a fiery explosion of color, light, and movement. “If I can’t dance, I don’t want to be in your revolution” – Emma Goldman
