Evening Star Presents is a small production company/artistic collective directed by Paul Evans and Danielle Elizabeth- based in Portland, Oregon.
One of the main mottos of ESP is: No Labels Necessary.
We admit, categorizing art into genres can be helpful for some folks… but here at Evening Star Presents, we really enjoy producing art without labels. Genre-blending, boarder-bending, multi-media human expression. Out of the box, knock your socks, off the wall, community reflective, introspective, outreaching art.
Another motto: It takes a village.
We strongly value and support collaborative art-making. So many of the performers we work with are multi-talented… illustrators, poets, painters, musicians, dancers, sculptors, costumers, graphic designers & film makers… This website is our hub to showcase and share the wealth of expression amongst the ESP “team.”
Performance: We focus on presenting professional music and dance in the styles of Early American Jazz and Swing as well as traditional and contemporary music and dance within and around the Bellydance & Balkan genres. We do this with various projects at events big and small, tours, short theater style runs, and stand alone shows. We work intimately with performing artists to create unique and engaging experiences for both performer and audience.
Recordings: ESP also records music of our projects! Click here for our new and growing recording catalogue.
