White Bird is excited to present the second company of its new White Bird Uncaged dance series, skinner | kirk + bielemeier, a collaborative program uniting three of the region's most talented dance artists Eric Skinner, Daniel Kirk, and Gregg Bielemeier. Gregg Bielemeier has been called "wonderfully inventive" by the Los Angeles Times, and Skinner and Kirk have been described by Willamette Week as "boldly athletic and seductive." In addition to Eric Skinner, Daniel Kirk and Gregg Bielemeier, the company consists of five of the region's strongest dancers, who have worked closely with the Skinner, Kirk and Bielemeier over the years: Elizabeth Burden, Zachary Carroll, Dorinda Holler, Heather Jackson, and Margo Yohner.

Based in Portland, Oregon, Eric Skinner and Daniel Kirk are Artistic Directors of skinner/kirk DANCE ENSEMBLE as well as founding members of BodyVox (Artistic Directors Jamey Hampton and Ashley Roland). White Bird's close relationship with all three choreographers extends back to June 1998 when Skinner and Kirk appeared in White Bird's presentation of the world premiere of BodyVox at PSU-Lincoln Hall. In October 1998 White Bird launched its subscription series with Gregg Bielemeier's memorable Odd Duck Lake, whose cast included Skinner and Kirk. The seed for skinner | kirk + bielemeier was planted in September 2007, when Eric Skinner and Daniel Kirk asked Gregg Bielemeier to choreograph a solo for Eric for a new program by the skinner/kirk DANCE ENSEMBLE. Daniel Kirk has extensive performance experience both nationally and internationally. His technique ranges from classical ballet to contemporary to innovative theatrical and aerial work.
