the live creature and ethereal things’ is a journey of the imagination for all ages. This dance performance is inspired by the mission of the Red Fred Project, founded by Dallas Graham, which gives voice to young creatives living in extraordinary circumstances. This magical adventure transports you past the threshold of the ordinary into a world of fantastical possibilities and asks, “if you could tell a story and share it with the entire world, what story would you tell?” 

Guest performer Robert Scott Smith joins the Company on this curious, shapeshifting, and theatrical quest. Storytelling in both English and Spanish, ‘the live creature and ethereal things’ explores how all of our voices and stories matter, and how our intimate social connections weave the pattern of our lives and happiness. Choreography by Artistic Director Daniel Charon, storyline in collaboration with Alexandra Harbold and Robert Scott Smith of Flying Bobcat Theatrical Laboratory, and original score created by John Paul Hayward. 

additional support provided by Mary Jane O'Connor, the Price Family Foundation, and Zions Bank
