Exploring Gaga . . . a revolutionary movement language demanding a physical rigor that pushes the body to its extremes while connecting effort with pure pleasure.
Featuring world-premieres by Danielle Agami and RDT alum, Andy Noble; the return of "By The Snake" by Noa Zuk; and a monumental body percussion work with over 140 young musicians from Utah Youth Orchestras and Ensembles.
"THEATRE" - (world-premiere) by Danielle Agami
"BY THE SNAKE" (2014) by Noa Zuk
"By the Snake" deconstructs the roles and routines of couple dancing to create a work that reflects a different social order.
"FILAMENT" - (WORLD PREMIERE) by Andy Noble
“Filament,” explores liminal dance -- dance that is at the threshold of two different states. Dance and technology will co-exist and blur the lines between the corporeal and digital body. “Filament” speaks to our insatiable need for technology and will create a visually altered and interactive performance space for live dance through projection and set design.
"HANDSFREE" by Anna Meredith & David Ogle with guests from Utah Youth Orchestras and Ensembles
Made up entirely of claps, snaps, slaps, and beat boxing (check out video here>>), the work was called "astonishing" and "breathtaking" by the Huffington Post. Members of RDT performed with UYOE in May for the U.S. premiere of the work, and the students will join RDT on their stage for the opening concert of our 51st season of dance in Salt Lake City.
