Short Description: 
Conduit Celebrates 20th Anniversary Season
Dmae Roberts welcomes artistic director Tere Mathern of Conduit Dance in downtown Portland. She was part of the collective of contemporary dancers who wanted to create a space for dancers to create new work to perform. She's been taking ont the day to day operations of Conduit. She'll tell us about the Dance+ summer festival of curated multi-discipline dance with veteran and emerging performers.

And in the latter part of the show we'll hear an audio art piece from Erik Ambers, a recent graduate of Mt. Hood Community College's Integrated Media program.  He offers us his personal piece about the story behind his grandmother's quilt. Ambers searches through memories and stories about his grandmother, Sylvia June Price, for the meaning behind the quilt she made for him. In it quilt there were patches she sewed in from the movie Star Wars, the science fiction movie from 1977, a film he couldn't imagine her watching. 

Music by Roland Toledo in his "Alter Structure" performance of  a new work called "Stem." He will be performing his new work for Conduit+.
