Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center
Salt Lake City, Utah
On sale: 6/30/2017
Now celebrating its 6th year of exploration, hoopla and provocative entertainment – not to mention the 20th anniversary of the Rose Wagner itself! – Rose Exposed is one of Salt Lake’s most innovative events featuring a new short work created around a unifying theme by each of the six resident companies.
Rose Exposed…The Sky is Falling! focused on all the ta-do surrounding fake news, is inspired by the well-known folktale that makes light of paranoia and mass hysteria. SB Dance will go full gangster-noir; RWDC and RDT will create new work that day, PYGmalion will weave the pieces together with sightings of Chicken Little and Turkey Lurkey throughout the night; Stephan Beus (Gina Bachauer’s 2006 Gold Medalist) will elevate the scene with live music; and Matthew Ivan Bennett (Plan-B’s resident playwright) will wrap up the evening with a new, apocalyptic comedy, whether or not the sky actually falls.
Recommended for ages 8 and up. No babes-in-arms. All patrons require a ticket regardless of age.
