Utahns for a Just Peace in the Holy Land and a free screening of Imprisoning a Generation, WildEarth Guardians and a landmark climate change victory, RDT's Manifest Diversity finale

Tonight's lineup:

Utahns for a Just Peace in the Holy Land's Mahan Khalsa and Mary Miller stopped by to talk about Imprisoning a Generation, a film they will be screening (free) Monday night in SLC. Filmmaker Zelda Edmunds joined by phone to talk about the film, which follows the stories of four young Palestinians who have been detained and imprisoned under the Israeli military and political systems. 

Jeremy Nichols of WildEarth Guardians talked about a landmark climate change victory handed down late-Wednesday.

Plus, the culmination of Repertory Dance Theatre’s Manifest Diversity – a season-long focus on the convergence of different cultures and peoples that have made modern dance a rich tapestry of the American experience. Guests included Linda Smith, RDT’s founder and artistic director; and dancers Efren Corado Garcia and Dan Higgins.

  • April 11-13: Voices, 7:30 p.m. at Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center, 138 W. Broadway, SLC. Voices is the finale of the modern dance repertory company's season-long initiative of MANIFEST DIVERSITY, an initiative to illuminate the convergence of different cultures and peoples that have made modern dance a rich tapestry of the American experience. Featuring five choreographers, VOICES highlights each choreographer's distinctive movement language to examine how we communicate, organize, and socialize, voice our opinions and solve our problems.
