Celebrating, exploring, and uniting Middle Eastern and Western dance for the 21st century, Los Angeles-based Bellydance Evolution presents Alice in Wonderland at Aladdin Theatre in Portland on Sunday, April 9, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. Bellydance Evolution founder and world renowned choreographer Jillina Carlano created a revolutionary approach to the whimsical and magical tale, re-imagining the colorful, iconic - and dare some say, "mad" - characters through the language of world fusion dance. Presenting theatrical dance shows with a storyline, much like a ballet, Bellydance Evolution features a cast of 20 international performers who are passionate about their art in the fields of Middle Eastern dance and music, break dance, theatrical hip-hop, contemporary, tribal and fusion dance, each bringing their own unique vision to the production.
Bellydance Evolution's Alice in Wonderland promises to take the audience on a spectacular journey that will excite both mainstream audiences and dance enthusiasts. Based on the Alice in Wonderland book, the performance is appropriate for all ages. Performing to sold-out crowds in over twenty countries spanning North and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia, Bellydance Evolution recently performed in Morocco with the Orchestra Philharmonic de Morocco in an "East meets West" collaboration performance and performed a 28 city, 35-performance tour of China.
"We have performed Alice in Wonderland throughout Asia, Europe, South Africa and Morocco and are thrilled to share Alice in Wonderland in Los Angeles, Oregon and Washington State this April," exclaimed Carlano.
Alice in Wonderland stars Jillina Carlano (Queen of Hearts), Heather Aued (Alice), Portland resident Sharon Kihara (The Caterpillar), Rin Ajna (The Mad Hatter), Ellyott Colon (The White Rabbit), and Ozzy Ashkenazi (The Chef).
Starring in Alice in Wonderland is Portland resident Sharon Kihara who is also the director of the Catharsis Dance Collective, a world dance organization and studio located in North Portland. Sharon began her education in Middle Eastern and American Belly Dance as a child in Eugene after being deeply inspired by the performers of the Caravan Stage at the Oregon Country Fair. With a career spanning two decades, Sharon has performed and taught thousands of students in over 60 countries worldwide and has pursued education in Dance Ethnology and Kinesiology, and holds teaching certifications in yoga therapeutics and dance. When not touring, Sharon offers intensive dance training programs as well as weekly classes at Catharsis' Portland Studio.
Continuing the successful formula established by past productions such as Immortal Desires and Dark Side of the Crown, Bellydance Evolution ensemble performs to a theatrical score commissioned from film and television composer Paul Dinletir, owner/director of Los Angeles-based 'audiomachine', who has written and produced trailer music for The Hobbit, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End and Avatar, and the music for the opening ceremonies of the last two Summer Olympics.
Bellydance Evolution was created with a mission to unite Eastern and Western culture through dance and this intention is evident in the works of the company through their education and residency programs. Together, these initiatives celebrate the dynamic aesthetics of world fusion dance, culture and creativity, by sharing the joy of dance with all communities. With the success of their residency program, Bellydance Evolution has established ensemble company members in the USA, Europe, Asia and Latin America, which allows this large scale production to perform all over the globe. In addition to this specialized performance program, principal cast members offer seminars that are open to all people in the community, giving dancers and non-dancers alike an opportunity to learn about this diverse and important cultural art form from accomplished masters in the field.
Jillina Carlano, Founder, Executive/Artistic Director (The Queen of Hearts) is a performer, master instructor, choreographer, director and producer, Jillina has devoted her life to dance. Jillina pulls from a strong dance background in Middle Eastern, folklore, jazz, ballet, and hip hop to create a colorful Middle Eastern fusion repertoire. She travels extensively, teaching seminars and performing in concerts worldwide. Jillina has co-produced 12 instructional DVDs, which are now offered in five different languages and distributed by Universal Records. In the summer of 2009 and 2010, Jillina was the first American to be invited as a featured performer in the prestigious closing gala at the Ahlan Wa Sahlan festival in Egypt. Jillina is the owner of Evolution Dance Studios, located in Universal City, California, USA.
Paul Dinletir, Music Composer, is the co-founder and lead composer for 'audiomachine', a boutique, motion picture advertising music production collective, specializing in original epic music and bone crunching sound design for theatrical trailers, television commercials and video game advertising campaigns. Since 2005, Paul has had his music place in countless feature film trailers and can be heard daily on television, radio and the internet, including the music for the past two Summer Olympics Opening Ceremonies. To create his signature sound, Paul records with the world's top orchestras and musicians in exclusive spaces such as Skywalker Ranch and Air Studios of London. He has composed exclusive music for blockbuster campaigns such as The Hobbit, Avatar, Life of Pi, Hunger Games, 300 and Snow White and the Huntsman. In creating original scores for Bellydance Evolution, Paul composes and records an emotional, dramatic soundtrack. He works side by side with the artistic director to bring the show to life and is an integral part of the creative process.
Alice in Wonderland will take place on Sunday, April 9, 2017 at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $30. Aladdin Theatre is located at 3017 SE Milwaukie Avenue, Portland, OR 97202.

The Cottonwood Gulch Prairie Trek began in 1926 when our founder, Hillis Howie, learned of plans to pave Route 66. He wanted to make sure that his students learned about the American West and Native cultures before it was too late. This 5 week, all male Trek will inspire and challenge young men through wilderness backpacking, local service projects, rock climbing, mountaineering, canyoneering, and exploration of cultural and scientific sites around the Four Corners. Prairie Trekkers spend a large part of their Trek traveling from site to site, bound only by the road and their destination. The remaining time will be spend at our Base Camp property located in the Zuni Mountains. Here Trekkers will work on their personal legacy projects that may include forest restoration projects, organic farming projects, or special carpentry additions to Base Camp. Prairie Trekkers have the highest rate of return and represent a 90 year legacy here at The Gulch.
Jun. 27th - Jul. 31st
Mountain Desert Trek is an experience unlike any other. Are you ready to spend 6 weeks backpacking through desert canyons, up mountain peaks, across rivers, and into the wilderness? Do you enjoy ghost towns, Native American cultures, local artists and musicians, service learning, and organic farming? The Cottonwood Gulch Mountain Desert Trek is our longest and most intensive Trek designed for young men and women ages 16-18. This Trek will spend much of their 44 days exploring sites like a Colorado 14er, Mesa Verde, Monument Valley, The Great Sand Dunes, and many other world class destinations. MDT Trekkers will develop leadership skills through personal projects, planning expeditions, demonstrating expedition mentality, and communal living. Most importantly, Trekkers will learn self-reliance, compassion for their peers, and how to overcome personal challenges.
Jun. 27th - Jul. 31st
The Turquoise Trail (a.k.a. The TT) was started in 1934, and it's been a pride of the Gulch ever since. Back then, The Gulch was a pioneer in getting young women outdoors. Today, the Turquoise Trail still inspires women to challenge express themselves as young women. This 5 week long all-female Trek will enamor trekkers and take them through wilderness backpacking trips, local service projects, rock climbing and mountaineering, and explorations of cultural and scientific sites throughout the Southwest. This Trek will spend the majority of their time out on the open road traveling the four corners. However, we settle down for 10 days at our Base Camp to work of legacy projects. In the past, these projects have included adobe kiln and horno restoration, pottery and silver smithing in our Native Arts Workshop, organic farming, forest restoration, and Base Camp beatification projects. Like our original trip, the Prairie Trek, nearly every member of this group returns for a second summer; a testament to the power of these experiences.
