Featuring the return of 'Elizabeth, the dance' by Ann Carlson and a new dance by Daniel Charon in collaboration with Adobe and Women Tech Council

This concert includes two vastly different dances by two dynamic choreographers. The return of Elizabeth, the dance by Ann Carlson and a world premiere by Company Artistic Director Daniel Charon. Originally premiered in 2017, Elizabeth, the dance by Ann Carlson reflects on “the visionaries and teachers” of modern dance in both homage and critique. With movement that is formal and physically awkward, deliciously surprising, and joyfully restrained, Carlson has created an astonishing tribute to modern dance and to the pleasures and challenges of being human. This surprising and delightful work derives inspiration, text, and play from a host of pioneering creatives. Elizabeth, the dance attains a perfect blend of spontaneity and structure with a timely questioning of purpose acquired through Carlson’s unique wit and humor.  This program will also include a world premiere by Company Artistic Director, Daniel Charon. This new work will feature the exploration of interactive video technology including the mining and visualization of data. This exciting collaboration between Adobe, Women in Tech Council, and Ririe-Woodbury connects three powerful organizations that each epitomize the spirit of empowerment through creativity and innovation.
