HOME RUN is a performance created for the screen and is produced and presented by the Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company.
The creations in this program highlight the creativity and vision of artists and performers closely associated with the Company and Salt Lake City while pushing us to expand our definition of dance as a performing art. All featured artists have taken on new roles within this process whether entering video editing, sound design, or virtual installations – their innovation will elevate this viewing experience. All of the work on this program is created for the screen, showcasing multiple approaches, techniques, and styles of dance film-making. During this time of social flexibility, this performance re-centers the value of those nearby and the support that can be achieved through nurturing these relationships. During this past year of transformation and the re-evaluation of our responsibilities in this community, we are looking to the artists who make up Ririe-Woodbury, from the past and present, in addition to innovative creators in our community and following their lead towards the future.
HOME RUN includes original dances for the screen created by guest artist Molly Heller featuring the Heartland Collective, Ririe-Woodbury Artistic Director Daniel Charon, Company Dancers, as well a showing of “Wash”, created in1970 by Stanley and Judith Hallett directed by Company co-founder Joan Woodbury.
This project is funded in part by the CARES Act and the Utah State Legislature through Utah Arts & Museums.
This show is sponsored by Richard and Nancy Potashner
