Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company’s WINTER SEASON brings two inspiring evenings of contemporary dance with a dynamic World Premiere, a Salt Lake City Premiere, and the return of two captivating favorites. WINTER SEASON casts its gaze on the fragility and magic embodied in our presence in the environment. It investigates humanity’s fascination with the physical world and the dilemmas inherent in our interactions with it. This exhilarating performance includes mesmerizing video effects, visual illusions, and thrillingly athletic dancing with four stunning works by choreographers from around the world.

Snowmelt (World Premiere) by Daniel Charon. Snowmelt considers the impact of the human footprint on our fragile biosphere. Joining the Company for this raucous and vibrant world premiere will be guest dancers from the University of Utah’s School of Dance.
Super WE (Salt Lake City Premiere), co-choreographed by Tzveta Kassabova and Raja Feather Kelly, is a spirited movement journey that examines the relentlessness of contemporary life. Rapid and interminable, this duet engages rhythmic movement, sound, and metaphor.
Physalia (1977) choreographed by Alison Chase and Moses Pendleton, co-founders of the internationally acclaimed Pilobolus Dance Theater. This piece was created exclusively for Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company and was the first work to be choreographed for another company by Chase and Pendleton. Watery images flow through the dance, as well as suggestions of the graceful—and sometimes absurd—creatures that move on the land and in the sea.
You and the Space Between (2014), returning by popular demand, is a perception-altering work by Cuban-born Company alumnus Miguel Azcue. By utilizing a live video feed, this piece provides visuals that seem to defy gravity in a mesmerizing exploration of space and time, calling us to contemplate our connection to—or disconnection from—our own planet.
Recommended for ages 8 and up. No babes-in-arms. All patrons must have a ticket regardless of age.
Single Ticket: $35 | $40 day of show
