The first world premiere, choreographed by Charlotte Boye-Christensen, former Company Artistic Director, showcases her dynamic style and inventive approach to dance-making. This work exemplifies her commitment to pushing the boundaries of what dance can be and is sure to captivate audiences. Artistic Director Daniel Charon’s world premiere features original score by the Salt Lake Electric Ensemble performed live. This marks Charon’s third collaboration with the group creating an electrifying experience. “Look Who’s Coming to Dinner” (2018) by Stefanie Batten Bland, which made its Company debut rounds this enticing program.in 2021. This theatrical dance work pays tribute to the trailblazers who fought for acceptance in love and life. Set around a transformative dinner
setting, the performers excavate universal traumas through imagery and ritual as they seek a seat at the table.
Join us for this extraordinary performance, which promises to be a celebration of innovation and creative expression. ASCENT will leave you inspired and invigorated as we honor our legacy and continue to push the boundaries of contemporary dance.
