A choreographic response to the landscape gives us a fresh perspective and ways to see, understand, and evaluate the world.
If the earth does grow inhospitable toward human presence, it is primarily because we have lost our sense of courtesy toward the earth and its inhabitants, our sense of gratitude, our willingness to recognize the sacred character of habitat, our capacity for the awesome, for the numinous quality of every earthly reality." -Thomas Berry


The Winged (1966) - by José Limón
Through movement that resembles the intricate patterns and rhythms of birds in flight, The Winged is about our collective dream that we can fly… a distillation of what it means to float, to flutter, to soar.  
I've Known Rivers (2005) - by Donald McKayle
Celebrated choreographer, Donald McKayle crafts a solo using the poetry of Langston Hughes …"I’ve known rivers ancient as the world and older than the flow of humanblood in human veins. My soul has grown deep like the rivers.” (The Negro Speaks of Rivers)  
Dancing the Bears Ears (2017) by Zvi Gotheiner
A work about sacred land animated with fragments of stories laced with the spirit of ancient inhabitants. A  ritual to raise consciousness about the significance of an extraordinary area…The Bears Ears National Monument.

FREE SYMPOSIUM: Preserving our Land, Water, and Culture
Friday, April 21 | 6:30 pm
Rose Room

As the dancers took their bow, they gathered together in the center of the stage, arms around each other. There was a finality to the bow, a sense of complete giving and abandon to the energy of sharing their transformative experiences at Bears Ears with us.

Indeed, it was a masterful, heartfelt performance that truly was a ritual of healing. That sense of change is evident at every turn. In that half hour, one could forget the contentious, more often brutal, politics that have surrounded the designation of the Bears Ears National Monument. From the opening ritualistic dance to the serene closing moments of the work, there arose a new emotional connection to a land about which hundreds of thousands upon hundreds of thousands of words have been written and uttered.
