Par·al·lax /ˈperəˌlaks/ The effect whereby the position or direction of an object appears to differ when viewed from different positions. This evening will include the re-construction and Salt Lake City premiere of a captivating work by choreographer Kate Weare titled Unstruck. Weare writes “this trio explores through movement and sound a process of live formation. Unstruck taps into nascency and formation at a primitive level: the carving of the body itself, an organization and dissolution of space, and a magnetic energy between dancers.” The dance features an original score by composer Curtis Robert Macdonald. The evening’s lineup also includes a world premiere by choreographer Raja Feather Kelly titled Pantheon. This musical-choreographic collaboration transposes the paganism and sacrifice of the Stravinsky/Nijinsky Rite of Spring to the twenty-first-century world of global pop culture, and the inherent sacrifices it demands of its audience. The new score is composed by Sam Crawford. Company Artistic Director Daniel Charon will premiere his latest work, Exilic Dances. This dance (set to the invigorating rhythms of klezmer music) is a musical theater styled exploration of the irony and perils associated with immigration. It honors community, identity, and the idea of embracing the stranger.CATEGORY: Theater & Dance
JUNIUS are excited to reveal new music with their new full-length album, "Eternal Rituals for the Accretion of Light" via PROSTHETIC RECORDS.
The album marks the completion of their conceptual trilogy which began in 2009 with their evoking LP "The Martyrdom of a Catastrophist", depicted by Rolling Stone as "a perfect hybrid of Neurosis and The Smiths". "Reports from the Threshold of Death" was released in 2011 to commemorate their signing with Prosthetic Records, and JUNIUS then returned to their conceptual project with their 2014 EP "Days of the Fallen Sun”. Recorded, mixed and mastered at Radar Studio with Will Benoit (Caspian, Rosetta), "Eternal Rituals for the Accretion of Light" takes inspiration from Elisabeth Haich's autobiography "Initiation", whilst touching on topics including karma, reincarnation and spiritual development across it's ten melodically divine tracks. Following the departure of former members Mike Repasch-Nieves (guitars), the album was written and performed entirely by vocalist/guitarist Joseph E. Martinez and drummer Dana Filloon, and also features guest appearances from Drew Speziale (Circle Takes the Square) and Gian Minardi (General Public).

Utah’s Native Artists in Exhibition features traditional and contemporary works by Native American artists with Utah ties. The exhibition presents an exciting mix of subject matter, mediums, and forms, and features Utah’s emerging Native artists as well as more recognized and accomplished artists. Exhibition themes draw upon traditional art forms of the region, like Navajo rug or basket weaving, but also showcase more contemporary perspectives expressed through forms such as sculpture, watercolor, and photography. The resulting exhibition invites the viewer to understand the complexity of the Native experience through both historic and modern lenses.

Artists Rebecca Klundt, Elise Ostraff, and Namon Bills create two-dimensional pieces for the exhibition Sacred Texting. The concept is to combine two very different literary constructs: first, sacred texts, most often thought of as canonized scripture, which invite contemplation and reformation; and second, texting, primarily meant to allow quick, often shortened and perfunctory communication dealing with the mundane or daily activity. The artists share their own personal canon of sacred texts coming out of their profane or daily lives and invite viewers to contemplate their meanings. The artists will talk about their work on Friday, September 29 at 6:30 p.m. The exhibition runs Monday through Friday through November 17.CATEGORY: Art & Museum Exhibits
