I said it in the June edition of 15 BYTES and I’ll say it again. While summer can be slow going for dance in Utah, things have been steadily building with concerts nearly every weekend of June and now well into July. As new projects emerge, artists capitalize on the off-season of mainstay companies and find new venues to support their work.
This weekend is just one example with NOW-ID’s inaugural performance, The Wedding, in the Masonic Temple theater. Tonight Erica Womack will be offering her take after the 7:30 performance so check back and offer your own thoughts.
On Monday, the third Provo Sites concert takes on the Central Utah Gardens in a mobile tour highlighting the areas amphitheater, formal gardens, gazebos and other gathering areas. Featuring choreography and performance by Ashley Anderson, Chara Huckins, Movement Forum, Kate Monson, Kori Wakamatsu, Pat Debenham & more, the concert offers an array of approaches and styles designed to both amplify and challenge the non-traditional spaces. From an unseasonal solo using Christmas Carols to a duet featuring a wife who dances and a husband who doesn’t, the concert offers new perspectives.
This iteration of Provo Sites has one show only! Monday the 29th; 7pm in the Central Utah Gardens; 355 West University Parkway; Free Admission. The show will take place rain or shine. If you miss Monday, it’s the third in line of a traveling series that has visited numerous unconventional spaces in the Utah Valley.
