RDT's 2017-2018 Season
SANCTUARY OCTOBER 5-7, 2017
The nature of sacred places inspires the centerpiece commission by Zvi Gotheiner, celebrating the Bears Ears National Monument with a new ritual that connects humanity to sacred water and land. “Tower,” by Andy Noble honors the hallowed ground where the Twin Towers once stood amidst falling rain and features 33 dancers, including guests from Utah Valley University. Performing under a torrent of 120 pounds of falling rice, the dancers in Eric Handman’s “Ghost Ship” explore how we are connected to our sense of place.
TOP BILL NOVEMBER 16-18, 2017
Featuring all choreography by RDT alum and choreographic master, William ”Bill” Evans, this show is “billed” as both light-hearted and touching. Including For Betty, Sweet Benny, Tin-Tal, Alternate Current, and a restaging of the crowd-favorite, Crippled Up Blues Additionally, Evans will grace the stage himself with a show-stopping tap number.
EMERGE January 5-6, 2018 - special add-on
RDT dancers can do more than dance. This show features all choreography by the RDT dancers in the Black Box Theater.
REGALIA FEBRUARY 24, 2018
Returning for the third year, REGALIA gives you the opportunity to award a commission for RDT next season. With two pricing options (with or without a pre-show cocktail party), this will be both a performance and a lively party. The evening will finish with a live band and dancing for all on stage.
DABKE March 16-18, 2018 - special add-on
