I can't say I've supported enough modern dance in my day. Recently I met one of the new directors at Rire Woodbury and she is so cool that I am making a point to see her show on the 23rd. Originally from Denmark, Charlotte Boye-Christensen received her formal training in London and completed her MFA Degree at Tisch School of the Arts, NewYork University. Her work has been commissioned in places as far as Milwaukee, Singapore and Cuba.

SURFACES wraps up Ririe-Woodbury's 45th Season with works by three compelling contemporary choreographers, including a poetic piece by award-winning New York choreographer Susan Marshall. Recipient of three "Bessies" and the MacArthur "Genius" Award, this will be Susan's first work presented in Utah.  The Company will also re-stage Doug Varone's musical and witty 1994 work "Strict Love," performed to a CBS memory-lane broadcast of the 1970s, which shows a world from which certainty and uncompromised strength have vanished.  The last work of the program is by award winning artistic director Charlotte Boye-Christensen.  Her "Degrees of Separation" is an emotionally charged piece about connection and loss. The score by Steve Reich, with haunting human voices, serves as the architecture for this piece.
