RDT Presents Snapshots
Join RDT as they dance an entertaining and playful "snapshot" of our neighborhoods.
“ A city is more than a place in space, it is a drama in time.” - Patrick Geddes
RDT has been using dance to celebrate environmental progress and encourage environmental responsibility as we encourage a greater understanding of place.
This season, we continue our look at communities by presenting a concert especially designed for young audiences that is inspired by the places we call home.
SNAPSHOTS takes a lively and entertaining look at the streets, businesses, parks and libraries…the gathering places, the lively places, the bicycle paths and the gardens that are part of our lives, part of our neighborhoods.
Today, architects, urban planners, sociologists and citizens are re-examining our cities, how they are designed, how people relate to them and how a city relates to its inhabitants.
Our neighborhoods are not only the hills and valleys and landscapes in our communities, but also histories, memories and of patterns of activities that are full of surprises.
There is a growing need to help young people understand the concept of environmental stewardship. RDT has been encouraging students K-12 to look, see, evaluate and express their surroundings in music, art and dance to tell the stories of their neighborhoods. Their observations have inspired us.
SNAPSHOTS features choreography (new and recycled) by RDT dancers and Zvi Gotheiner plus interviews with students, photographs and music that we hope will generate family discussions about the things that concern us and the things we love about our neighborhoods.
“Under the seeming disorder of the old city, wherever the old city is working successfully, is a marvelous order for maintaining the safety of the streets and the freedom of the city… This order is all composed of movement and change, and although it is life, not art, we may fancifully call it the art form of the city and liken it to the dance -- an intricate ballet.
Snapshots is a concert that shares the observations and concerns of some 6th and 7th graders about their neighborhoods. Snapshots is especially designed for young and family audiences and we encourage everyone to discuss and answer questions that we asked students from the Salt Lake Arts Academy.
RDT presents SNAPSHOTS, a joyous, family friendly concert that celebrates our community, our place, in music, dance and media.
