Tolerance in Motion is a workshop lead by Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company professionals that asks 14 young dancers from East High School, West High School, and Salt Lake School for the Performing Arts to join in a creative process that explores the idea of tolerance through the visual and performing arts. These young dancers will receive a brief lecture and history on the accompanying exhibition, The International Tolerance Project: Promoting Dialogue Through Design,in Utah Museum of Fine Arts’ (UMFA) ACME Lab before collaborating together to make their own large-scale tolerance posters in UMFA’s Great Hall. The dancers will then embark in a workshop of dance, exploring tolerance kinetically in that same space. The visual products created in this workshop will have the opportunity to live-on and promote tolerance at other community locales. The International Tolerance Project: Promoting Dialogue Through Design is on view January 17–June 23, 2019.

Presented in partnership with Utah Museum of Fine Arts. Original concept of the Traveling Tolerance Poster Show by Mirko Ilić.
