Par·al·lax – The effect whereby the position or direction of an object appears to differ when viewed from different positions.
This evening will include the re-construction and Salt Lake City premiere of a captivating work by choreographer Kate Weare titled Unstruck. Weare writes “this trio explores through movement and sound a process of live formation. Unstruck taps into nascency and formation at a primitive level: the carving of the body itself, an organization and dissolution of space, and a magnetic energy between dancers.” The dance features an original score by composer Curtis Macdonald. The evening’s lineup also includes a world premiere by choreographer Raja Feather Kelly titled Pantheon. This musical-choreographic collaboration transposes the paganism and sacrifice of the Stravinsky/Nijinsky Rite of Spring to the twenty-first-century world of global pop culture, and the inherent sacrifices it demands of its audience. The new score is composed by Sam Crawford. Company Artistic Director Daniel Charon will premiere his latest work, Exilic Dances, which honors community, identity, and the idea of embracing and accepting the stranger in the face of diasporic communities.
