A fun mix of the rock n’ roll I used to love with the 50’s sounds MY mom used to love!” Another mom in Los Angeles praises the band, saying, “I hire a babysitter to go to all their shows. They just have so much youthful energy, they make me feel young too!”

The Wood Brothers

In a career chock full of highlights, The Wood Brothers hold a special place in their hearts for their performances at Levon Helm's legendary Midnight Ramble. As repeat special guests at Helm's famed Woodstock barn, the trio—guitarist Oliver Wood, bassist Chris Wood, and drummer Jano Rix— developed a cherished friendship with the late icon that transcended simple musical collaboration and left an indelible mark on their songs and their lives. That shared history made it all the more emo- tional when The Wood Brothers returned to the barn on August 19, 2016, for their first Ramble since Helm's passing. Captured pristinely on their new album, 'Live At The Barn,' the band's sold-out performance that night spanned their career and showcased the kind of singularly eclectic and electrifying performance style that's earned them devoted legions of fans around the world.

2017 Anne and Sandy Dolowitz Lecture in Human Rights: "The Global Resurgence of Violent Extremism: A Panel Discussion"

The annual Dolowitz Lecture in Human Rights was established in 2007 in the International Studies Program at the University of Utah. Given the recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia and beyond, this year’s presentation will take the form of a panel discussion. Academic, civic, and student leaders will address the historical and contemporary dynamics of violent extremism in the US and around the globe. At issue are questions of ethnic nationalism, free speech, intolerance, and ideologies that justify or perpetuate violence. At stake is the very possibility of respectful and peaceful dialogue. Moderator Kilo Zamora | Gender Studies | University of Utah Panelists Brittney Nystrom | American Civil Liberties Union of Utah Laurie Marhoefer | Department of History | University of Washington Angela Romero | Utah District 26 | Utah State House of Representatives Jonathan Brunstedt | Department of History | Utah State University Irene Ota | College of Social Work | University of Utah Dillon Clark | Young Americans for Freedom *Reception immediately following the panel discussion **Parking at the U is limited; consider using TRAX (exit at Stadium Station) Do you have questions that you would like the panelists to address?

Fugue

The University of Utah School of Dance presents a modern dance concert entitled "Fugue" featuring choreography by MFA candidates: Brianna Lopez, Dat Nguyen, Louisa Rankin, and Rebekah Ryan. The concert will be a compilation of the four artists’ thesis research, presented on the Hayes Christensen Theater stage in the Marriott Center for Dance. Like the layered musical composition and the surreal state of altered consciousness, "Fugue" explores the boundaries of modern dance and uses movement to entice, enlighten, and push the limits of thought and curiosity. Brianna Lopez aspires to reimagine desire as an autonomous act and an intuitive response that welcomes a transparent, accessible, and sensate body. Her work aims to conceptualize the ways in which we think about the body and its desires through metaphor, imagery, and sensation—in order to influence new ways of experiencing embodiment.  Dat Nguyen investigates the idea of dance as being “anti-spectacle” by establishing a playground on which multiple ideas exchange and interrupt each other constantly. Dat hopes that his research will allow him to uproot the social/cultural structure (consciously or subconsciously) that perpetually turns dance and other art forms into spectacles to be consumed. Louisa Rankin investigates the term “isolation” and how it can be explored and explained through movement. Set to the gritty and melodic music of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, this work is specifically geared towards situations in which isolation exists in our current lives and experiences – places of personal discovery/revelation, illness, anxiety/fear of rejection, incongruity, guilt, secrets, and narcissism. Rebekah Ryan interests draws attention to the adaptive body. She researches how the body accepts and thrives under the pressure and demand for change. Her work fuses various genres of dance and instrumental sounds together in attempts to orchestrate an encompassing strength of diversity and reorientation. Show Dates and Times: November 30th at 5:30 p.m. December 1st & 2nd at 7:30 p.m. Marriott Center for Dance, University of Utah Tickets available online at www.tickets.utah.edu or at the door: FREE with the U Artspass (UID) for University of Utah students/$12 Adults/$8 Students, Faculty, Seniors For more information go to www.dance.utah.edu
