This program features a world premiere by Artistic Director, Daniel Charon titled Aberrations of Light. Aberrations is inspired by Carl Sagan’s spellbinding book Pale Blue Dot. Sagan’s insightful writing considers humanity's place in the universe and how the Earth is the only home that we have. The dance considers our connection to the planet and how it is vital to exist in collaboration with the world around us. In honor of the breadth of Utah’s dance community, 12 dancers from Utah Valley University’s Departement of Dance will join Ririe-Woodbury’s six dancers, creating a compelling and dynamic ensemble.Returning to the Capitol Theatre after a successful 2019 premiere, Ririe-Woodbury will present a re-envisioned version of The Live Creature & Ethereal Things. This curious and shapeshifting theatrical quest, created with local collaborators Alexandra Harbold and Robert Scott Smith of Flying Bobcat Theatrical Laboratory features an original cinematic score by John Paul Hayward. Inspired by the Red Fred Project founded by Executive Director Dallas Graham, The Live Creature & Ethereal Things features the Jolly Troop, a group of larger-than-life birds that guide audiences of all ages through a surprising journey and asks, “If you could tell a story and share it with the entire world, what story would you tell?” This performance will include storytelling in both English and Spanish.
