Based in Portland, Oregon, BodyVox’s movement surges from a source informed by years of cross training imbued with a curiosity and fascination with the endless possibilities of the human body in motion. Artistic Directors Jamey Hampton and Ashley Roland are distinguished artists on the world stage, formed by their years working as creators and performers with innovative dance companies Momix, ISO Dance, and Pilobolus. BodyVox builds upon this tradition of excellence with a unique voice that is clearly influenced by its Northwest roots. Created in 1997 to fulfill a commission from Portland Opera, the company has since created eleven original shows (including three operas), and toured across the U.S. to critical acclaim. Adding to its full-evening shows and repertory pieces, BodyVox’s films have won numerous awards in national and international festivals. “Modern Daydreams” – composed of “Treadmill Softly,” “Islands in the Sky,” Unleashed” and “Deere John” – won the prestigious American Choreography Award for Outstanding Achievement in Short film in 2002. Most recently the company’s film “Advance” won the Audience Choice Award at Dance Camera West.
