TONIGHT! Fieldwork: Giving & Receiving Feedback
When: Wednesday, February 15, 2017 at 6:30pm Where: Utah Opera Production Studios: 336 N 400 W Salt Lake City, UT 84106 Cost: Free
Amy Caron will lead a Fieldwork workshop. Selected SLEAP artists will show work and exchange feedback with their peers using the Fieldwork format, which was designed by artists. The group is multidisciplinary. Artists are intentionally not segregated by creative discipline or experience level because feedback from a diverse audience is valuable information to an artist and we value cross-disciplinary exposure to cultivate a broad range of feedback dialogue. In summary, the goals of The Field are the following:
Provide artists with a safe place to present their work and receive feedback in terms that are constructive, challenging, and nurturing.
Re-energize artists in relationship to their work by having other artists respond to their work, providing a new perspective.
Break through the isolation of working as an independent artist by joining other artists who are in a similar process of development.
Participate in an on-going deadline structure to facilitate productivity.
Develop artists’ abilities to articulate clearly what they perceive in others’ works.
Salt Lake City’s newest performing arts venue, the Eccles Theater, opened its doors in October 2016 and has since hosted a variety of events in its Delta Performance Hall. But the hall isn’t the theater’s only performance space, in fact, the Eccles Theater offers a variety of adaptable theatrical settings including the Regent Street Black Box, McCarthey Plaza, Winter Garden and Rehearsal Room.
Regent Street Black Box This intimate and unadorned box-style theater, similar to the Leona Wagner Black Box, offers a blank canvas that can be transformed into your theatrical vision. Performances of all types will thrive in the space with its versatile stage and seating options, modern sound and light, a tension grid, and theatrical soft goods.
McCarthey Plaza The Eccles Theater’s outdoor gathering place sits in the center of the newly revitalized Regent Street. With space for tenting, stage and production equipment, and audiences up to 1,000 people as well as ample electricity the plaza is an exciting new option to host concerts and festivals.
Winter Garden The Winter Garden has a stunning backdrop of 2 grand staircases, terrazzo art flooring, multi-colored balustrade glass ascending the tiers, and a soaring glass window framing it all which creates a distinct atmosphere for live music, lectures, and dance.
Rehearsal Studio The Eccles Theater Rehearsal Studio is perfect for dance and drama practice, with a sprung dance floor, mirrors, ballet bars and a sound system.
A Professional Event Team Eccles Theater’s professional and knowledgeable event team will help with your production from start to finish including event management, ticketing services, patron services, and technical support. The Eccles team is part of Salt Lake County Center for the Arts, who operates Abravanel Hall, Capitol Theatre, and the Rose Wagner Center, and promises to bring a wealth of experience to your event.

I grew up in a home full of a passion for music, creativity, and talent. I sang, played the saxophone and guitar, and danced. At 14, I discovered theater and it was then that I truly fell in love with the arts. Being involved in theatre and music provided me with a safe space to be myself, feel comforted, and have a home and a family to support me.
How have you seen the positive effects of the arts in your life or in the Salt Lake County?
When I was 14 my family was struggling financially and ended up homeless for quite some time.
Three Driven and Intelligent Women By Daisy Blake | Pygmalion Theatre Company
Pygmalion Theatre Company’s season continues with “Eleemosynary,” by Lee Blessing, directed by Jeremy Chase, which plays Feb. 24 through March 11. The show stars Barb Gandy, Tracie Merrill and Sydney Shoell.
“Eleemosynary,” which premiered in 1985, follows the relationships between three generations of women. The word ‘eleemosynary’ itself plays a significant part in the plot.
The play probes into the delicate relationship of three singular women: the grandmother, Dorothea, who has sought to assert her independence through strong-willed eccentricity; her brilliant daughter, Artie (Artemis), who has fled the stifling domination of her mother; and Artie’s daughter, Echo, a child of exceptional intellect—and sensitivity—whom Artie has abandoned to an upbringing by Dorothea.
