Dancing a Revolution: Innovate. Collaborate. Create!

Monday, January 21, 2013 - 12:00pm - 3:00pm
The Natural History Museum of Utah, Special Exhibits Gallery

Join students from the University of Utah's Department of Modern Dance to create an original, one-of-a-kind dance performance inspired by the baskets in Weaving a Revolution. Like the basket weavers, you can think up new ideas, share them, and work together with others to invent a new work of art. 

Here's a Hint: For an engaging view of the dancers, position yourself on the bridge that crosses the Canyon on Level 3 at Noon or 2:00 p.m.  You will have a unique perspective on the dancers as they perform inspired by figures on the baskets, and enjoy the accoustics of the percussion!
