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;


Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company and Repertory Dance Theatre will create new work that day;


PYGmalion Theatre Company will weave the pieces together with sightings of Chicken Little and Turkey Lurkey throughout the night;


Stephan Beus (Gina Bachauer International Piano Foundation’s 2006 Gold Medalist) will elevate the scene with live music;


and Plan-B Theatre Company's resident playwright Matthew Ivan Bennett will wrap up the evening with a new, apocalyptic comedy, whether or not the sky actually falls.
