After 47 years of building community through the creation, performance, and perpetuation of modern dance, Repertory Dance Theatre (RDT) is asking the community to help build a dance. The RDT dancers are creating choreography using movement phrases donated by the community.
RDT is inviting the community to become a partner in our creative process. Each day at the Utah Arts Festival, RDT will be filming willing participants performing 8 second movement phrases. This could be anything from a walk across the stage to eight consecutive pirouettes.
With the collection of these 8 second fragments, the RDT dancers will have a movement bank of material which they will explore, embellish, and de-construct to create a new movement language. This language will be developed into a new piece of choreography that will premiere on RDT's 47th season concert, EMBARK,October 4-6, 2012
