free & open to the public 

Join the companies of Repertory Dance Theatre and NYC-based ZviDance at a free, public event about what makes the Bears Ears National Monument sacred to all of us. It's the start of our #DanceWithBearsEars campaign to raise funds for a new commission by Zvi Gotheiner (of ZviDance) to create a work that honors and illuminates the sacred nature of the Monument. 

A new dance work, "Sacred Lands/Sacred Waters," will premiere in October 2017, at RDT's season opener in Salt Lake.



To launch the development of this new work, you are invited to a panel discussion with two Native American tour guides and others who will share with us a multi-media presentation about the Monument, its story, and the five Native tribes that came together to preserve it.
