push/FOLD, established in 2015 in Portland, OR, is the contemporary dance company directed by Samuel Hobbs, whose creations have become known for his unique style in choreographed momentum, and athletic non-traditional partnering.
working with dancer Jessica Evans of SubRosa Dance Collective, and longtime dance partner of Hobbs’, push/FOLD has since expanded with Briley Jozwiak whose career spans Atlanta Ballet, Nevada Ballet, and Ballet Tucson; and Holly Shaw, previously of BodyVox.
push/FOLD’s mission is to provide training and educational opportunities; to promote health and art to communities through classes, workshops and performances. You can learn more, and keep in touch with their newsletter, by visiting www.pushslashfold.org.
push/FOLD is actively developing their evening-length work ‘Early’, to premier in April 2018 in Portland, OR.
