Chris and I just finished an excellent research trip to Chicago, IL. We were there for the blizzard so we missed a lot of our planned activities but still managed to do some good work. We spent time at the Art Institute of Chicago looking at the Joseph Cornell collection. We also spent a lot of time with new collaborator Nathan Ruyle conceiving the look, feel and mechanics of Uthopia Parkway. Luckily Nathan was snowed in THREE extra days so we had his captive attention.
A few very important thank yous:
To Links Hall, NPN and Marwen for making the trip possible through the NPN Community Fund Grant. Special thanks for Roell for all her work on the details.
To the beautiful and amazingly hospitable Pam Crutchfield for housing us, including many snow bound meetings and endless Ruby running around.
To Chuck Thurow for a wonderful dinner party (and delicous food.)
And a very special thanks to Lindy Bergman for her time, stories and wonderful collection of art.
As always thanks to Chris for being such an inspiring collaborator.
Chris and Angie will be teaching and performing
in Salt Lake City

The first annual SaltDanceFest brings together internationally renowned dance artists Eiko & Koma, Chris Aiken & Angie Hauser, and Teri & Oliver Steele for two weeks of moving, collaborating and dancemaking, May 31–June 10. The festival is a creative laboratory to nurture artists and dancers in a supportive environment of experimentation, exploration, investigation, curiosity and collaboration.
SaltDanceFest allows participants to work intimately with the guest artists on the development and exploration of ideas in dance and motion. SaltDanceFest will be broken into three sets of daily classes that participants self select, that include: 1) contemporary technique/movement exploration (Aiken, Hauser and Steele); 2) creative process, composition and choreography (all artists); 3) Delicious Movement workshop (Eiko & Koma); and 4) creation of new work on participants (Aiken, Hauser and Steele), complete class information follows. The workshop/festival will culminate in a performance of the guest artists’ new works (Aiken, Hauser and Steele), and selected works created by the participants made in the creative process, composition and choreography classes. In addition, there will be formal concert performances and lectures by the guest artists, an improv jam, and social events.
