Elizabeth, the dance

Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company presents the world premiere of Elizabeth, the dance, an evening-length work conceived and choreographed by visionary 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, surprising, and restrained. It 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.”

Premieres 7:30pm April 13-15, 2017 | 2pm April 15, 2017 | Leona Wagner Black Box Theatre | Salt Lake City, UT | For tickets, click here
