Movement Forum: B-Sides & Rarities

Friday July 16



Salt Lake City’s improvisation-based modern-dance company Movement Forum always prepared for past performances by developing improvised movement around a theme or idea in the studio, then loosely “re-creating” those phrases and structures for an audience. This time around, it has decided to forgo even that much planning.

From that point, un-planning is the plan,” explains Danell Hathaway, Movement Forum director. “Instead of creating structures, we have been focusing on creating an environment that is conducive to improvisation (including props, a live band, an array of costumes, etc.) and hope that our dancers bring their A game the night of the performance as well as draw from the energy of the audience.”

B-Sides & Rarities will consist of two separate performances of pure improvisation sandwiching a period set aside for audience feedback, some food and drink, music and mingling.

Movement Forum: B-Sides & Rarities @ Sugar Space Studio for the Arts, 616 Wilmington Ave. (2190 South), 888-300-7898, July 16, 7 & 9:30 p.m.,
