LOGAN, UT — The Cache Valley Center for the Arts presents REPERTORY DANCE THEATRE on MARCH 15& 16, 2011 at 7:30 p.m. in the Ellen Eccles Theatre. Let yourself be moved by one of Utah’s top touring modern dance companies. Repertory Dance Theatre (RDT) will perform ELEMENTS, a dance concert designed to remind audiences of the beauty and fragility of our planet. This concert will feature the works of Ze’eva Cohen, Ford Evans, Eric Handman, Mary Frances Lloyd, and Zvi Gotheiner. “RDT has been recognized worldwide for their long standing commitment to dance preservation& creation,” said Wally Bloss, executive director for the Cache Valley Center for the Arts. “This concert showcases RDT’s dedication to the sustainability of our world and the arts.” The Elements have come full circle. Since humankind’s earliest years, alchemists have seen our planet’s fundamental essences as “earth, air, fire, and water”. Our existence, lifestyles and economies depend on understanding and solving problems relating to Earth, Air, Energy, and Water. This repertoire defines our planet’s fundamental essences, the four essential Elements, to motivate our desire for clean energy, clean air, clean water and a clean and healthy earth. Highlights from the program include Zvi Gotheiner’s GLACIER, a contemporary water ritual that imagines a future civilization coping with shrinking resources. Other works include WATERMARK by Ford Evans and lastly Mary Frances Lloyd’s THE LADY OF THE LAKE, the magical and mysterious supernatural Celtic goddess of water who will leave you breathless. Since 1966, RDT has inspired tens of thousands of students and teachers each year and has acquired over 330 pieces of choreography. The company has created new pathways for audiences to experience and value the art of dance. RDT is commitment to finding ways to engage audiences with activities inspired by literature, poetry, music, visual arts, environment, “place” and socially relevant issues that serve to train and ignite the creative voice in people of all ages. Based at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in Salt Lake City, Utah, RDT contributes to the cultural, social, and economic vitality of the community and the state.
