Introducing our NWNW guest blogger Jun 4, 2010

Long-time patron and all-around great guy Shango Los will be coming to see all the showcases in the NW New Works Festival this weekend and next, and giving us his take on the performances. By way of introduction, here's a short bio: With a background in the visual arts, Shango Los was instantly enamored with contemporary dance after attending the first On the Boards performance by Japan’s Dumb Type in 1999. Since that time, Shango has studied the art form, traveled to see international choreography and attended closed rehearsals to better understand the choreographic creative process. He has also been a fundraiser and benefactor for several fledgling dance companies seeking to expand their audiences. Stay tuned as he makes his way through all the art!
