BARE PORTLAND

POWERFUL PERFORMANCES. PORTLAND PROUD.

Bare Portland believes that stories don’t happen in a vacuum. They happen in communities and the places in which those communities thrive. Theatre lives in our libraries, beaches, monuments, and churches. We extract theater from the traditional stage and place it in fresh spaces.  Our interactive, site-specific performances make each location a performer. Plays happen everywhere, and our playground is Portland. Come see and celebrate our city. We never turn anyone away. 

 

MISSION

 

Bare Portland is a performance collaborative focused on community building through site-specific creative projects.  We create high caliber theatrical productions open to all members of the Portland community to foster empathy and inclusiveness.

 

Emboldened by the idea that stories can be told anywhere, Bare Portland hosts performances outside of the traditional stage setting and brings programming to notable public spaces of Portland. Bare Portland collaborates with a broad section of local creatives, as well as organizations outside the creative sector. In our commitment to accessibility, we feature pay-what-you-can or free tickets to all events.

 

 

UPCOMING

 

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM

Shakespeare's summer favorite, A Midsummer Night's Dream features mischievous faeries, mismatched lovers, and a donkey. With an Eighties Pop twist, every breath you take ends in a laugh. Love is a battlefield and we just want to have fun. It’s magic. 

In celebration of the great outdoor spaces of Portland, Bare Portland’s hilarious take Midsummer will delight all ages.
