SPRING SEASON (April 13-15, 2017) presents the world premiere of Elizabeth, the dance, conceived and choreographed by visionary multi-disciplinary artist, Ann Carlson. Built for the concert stage, this full-evening-length collaboration between Carlson and Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company is an episodic accumulation of dances that are poignant and surprising. The work traces personal and public histories through the lens of embodiment, desire, and delight. Elizabeth, the dance is a puzzle, a meditation, and a love letter.
Carlson says: “My intention in this work is to pay homage to a present moment, to that which has come before, to teachers, to histories, to dancers and the powers of dancing, and to the joys, disappointments, and mysteries of desire.”
Elizabeth, the dance is made possible with additional support from: Zions Bank | John & Marcia Price Family Foundation | Sam & Diane Stewart Family Foundation | Marriner S. Eccles Foundation | Bick Robbins
