SALT LAKE CITY, UT – Repertory Dance Theatre presents an evening of choreography by the RDT dancers titled EMERGE, January 6-7, 2017 in the intimate Leona Wagner Black Box Theatre at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center.
RDT prides itself on being not only a revolutionary institution of modern dance, but also an incubator for dancers and choreographers. RDT dancers are encouraged to be technically proficient dancers, inspiring teachers, as well as innovative choreographers.
On January 6-7, EMERGE will feature work by seven of the current RDT dancers as well as a piece by former RDT dancer and current Artistic Associate, Nicholas Cendese.
Dancers will use both fellow RDT dancers and other dancers from the community and pieces will range from solos to larger group ensembles.
Lauren Curley's "after/ever" is a duet featuring music composed and performed live by Eli Wrankle of 3hattrio. Justin Bass' work "You Can Sit With Us" features eight dancers and captures the message of a community and how different relationships can be formed.
Dan Higgins will follow up on his choreographic debut of "Declivity" performed as part of the Great Salt Lake Fringe Festival this summer. Higgins will present "Ipseity" with seven local dancers. Efren Corado Garcia will present a solo work while Jaclyn Brown will present a duet entitled “Miasma” investigating the indifference that is experienced within a complacent relationship.
In addition to the pieces the dancers have been working on over the past few months, EMERGE will also feature a work created during show week featuring dancers from the WINTERDANCE WORKSHOP (January 2-4).
"RDT is thrilled to give our dancers this opportunity to present their own work," says Executive/Artistic Director Linda C. Smith. "Our dancers are extremely talented and we are proud to present this evening of dance by the next generation of artists."
