Summer Arts On Main: Pendulum Aerial Arts says
As part of Summer Arts on Main Street, Portland’5 Centers for the Arts volunteers present the Noontime Showcase concerts every Wednesday in July and August. The free series continues on July 20, 2016 at 12 PM with Pendulum Aerial Arts. The performance will be held in downtown Portland on Main Street, between southwest Broadway & Park Ave., next to Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall.

Under the direction of Suzanne Kenney, Pendulum has been an innovator in both aerial performance and education in the United States, mixing dance, acrobatics, theatre and storytelling with contemporary circus arts. Pendulum’s productions create a stunning visual journey for audiences that break the barriers of traditional art forms and fuse mixed genres while weaving artistically compelling stories that inspire and entertain audiences and performers alike. Today, motivated by a passion for telling stories and inspiring youth, the company collaborates with cross-disciplinary performers to create new works ranging from vaudeville style entertainment to narrative-driven contemporary productions. Visually stunning and emotionally moving, Pendulum’s work is a window into strength, beauty, joy, and the desire to take risks. The company has created twenty original productions, most notably Crimson Cabaret, Around Midnight and High Art, its current touring production. Pendulum embarked on its first national tour during the 2011-12 season.

All Noontime Showcase concerts are FREE and open to the public. Concerts are held in downtown Portland on Southwest Main Street, between Broadway & Park Ave., next to Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall. Each concert begins at 12 PM. and ends at 1 PM. Tickets are not required for entry.

Summer Arts on Main Street is every Wednesday from 11AM – 2PM during the months of July and August, includes free music (and other miscellaneous) performances, children’s activities and outdoor booths featuring local artisans selling handmade crafts.
