ALABASTER by Audrey Cefaly

Presented by Salt Lake Acting Company at Salt Lake Acting Company

May 05 - Jun 06, 2021

The inhabitants of a small farm in Alabaster, Alabama are no strangers to destruction and loss. But when an outsider arrives to help them make sense of the past, they must confront their mortality and deal with the trauma head-on. Through laughter, tears, and even a couple of talking goats, Audrey Cefaly weaves a darkly comic southern tale of redemption that examines how one reassembles the pieces of a broken heart. ALABASTER is produced at Salt Lake Acting Company as a part of a National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere. Other partnering theaters are Florida Repertory Theatre (Fort Myers), Capital Stage (Sacramento), 16th Street Theater (Berwyn IL), Kitchen Dog Theater (Dallas), ShrewdProductions (Austin), Know Theatre of Cincinnati, Phoenix Theatre (Indianapolis), Williamston Theatre (Michigan), and New Jersey Repertory Company (Long Branch). For more information please visit www.nnpn.org. Presented both streaming and in-person (should public health conditions allow).

Sep 16 - Oct 31, 2020

FRIENDS of Great Salt Lake's Alfred Lambourne Arts Program showcases artistic expressions of Great Salt Lake in the categories of visual arts, literary arts, movement, and sound. The Program takes its name from the renowned painter and writer, Alfred Lambourne (1850-1926), who is remembered for his dozens of paintings and sketches of Great Salt Lake along with his memoir, "Pictures of an Inland Sea," which recounts his time living on Great Salt Lake's Gunnison Island. Typically we gather during the first week of September to experience the artistic submissions in person; however, in order to protect the health and safety of all involved, this year we've assembled a virtual galley catalog instead.

Sep 16 - Dec 02, 2020

We see this time of global crises, from COVID-19 to the uprisings for justice, as an opportunity to rethink, re-evaluate, and redesign systems that do not sustain artists of marginalized communities. While the Mountain West has been an incubator for artists in dance, theatre, music, visual and literary arts, and film, it is also a region that presents challenges and obstacles to creativity. This fall, UtahPresents will convene six panels focused on artists in these disciplines, beginning a conversation about equity and creativity. All panels run from 2 PM - 3:30 PM, Mountain Time. They will be recorded for later viewing. September 16: Dance October 14: Theatre October 28: Music November 4: Public & Visual Art November 18: Film December 2: Literary Arts

References to Salvador Dali Make Me Hot- VIRTUAL

Presented by Wasatch Theatre Company at Online/Virtual Space

Nov 13 - Nov 22, 2020

José Rivera was inspired by many events in his life to write References. His children brought home a stray kitten that they took care of. The neighborhood was riddled with coyotes, and he began to imagine the conversations that they might have. His own marriage was also in peril at the time, and he and his wife did in fact separate around the same time. The character of Benito was somewhat inspired by his younger brother Tony, who was a soldier in the Persian Gulf war stationed in Barstow, California where the play takes place. In addition to this, Rivera had been heavily influenced by Colombian novelist Gabriel García Márquez, who brought magical realism into the mainstream. The works of Marquez and the paintings of the eponymous artist Salvador Dalí, specifically the piece "Two Pieces of Bread Expressing Sentimental Love", were inspirations for the play, along with Pedro Calderon de…

USUO: On Demand presents Stephen Hough plays Bach, Schumann & Liszt (Streaming 10/22-11/21/20) Digital Content British piano sensation and MacArthur Fellow Stephen Hough embarks upon a 75-minute solo program of Bach, Robert Schumann and two works by Liszt that would challenge the stamina and technique of any pianist. Hough, a frequent soloist with Utah Symphony, was originally scheduled to perform Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5, “Emperor” followed by Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4 on the orchestra’s first two consecutive Masterworks concerts of the 2020-21 season. Felix Mendelssohn once wrote of the Bach Chaconne: “On one stave, for a small instrument, the man writes a whole world of the deepest thoughts and most powerful feelings. If I imagined that I could have created, even conceived the piece, I am quite certain that the excess of excitement and earth-shattering experience would have driven me out of my mind.” Schumann’s “Fantasie” stands as…

Traveling While Black - Online

Presented by Salt Lake Film Society at Online/Virtual Space

Sep 29 - Dec 31, 2020

Traveling While Black The Green Book was a critical guide for African-Americans struggling to travel safely in the Jim Crow era. This 360 degree video explores its complicated legacy. This film offers a revealing view of the Green Book era as told through Ben’s Chili Bowl, a black-owned restaurant in Washington, and reminds us that the humiliations heaped upon African-Americans during that time period. Sandra Butler-Truesdale, born in the capital in the 1930s, references an often-forgotten trauma—and one of the conceptual underpinnings of the Jim Crow era—when she recalls that Negroes who shopped in major stores were not allowed to try on clothing before they bought it. Store owners at the time offered a variety of racist rationales, including that Negroes were insufficiently clean. At bottom, the practice reflected the irrational belief that anything coming in contact with African-American skin — including clothing, silverware or bed linens — was contaminated…
