The Bridge - SALT Contemporary Dance and Stuart Maxfield - Fictionist

Performed by SALT Contemporary Dance, a Utah-based company of classically trained, artistically versatile dancers, this chilling tale unfolds through stunning choreography by Brendan Duggan, 2017 winner of the WMU National Choreography Competition.

During the height of the Civil War, a young man awaits his hanging for attempted arson. As his mind races to his family and ideals, his battle for survival becomes a battle for self. Commissioned by UtahPresents for its world premiere, this genre-bending dance and music performance—created by Salt Lake City natives Andrew Maxfield and Stuart Maxfield (singer/bassist of Fictionist) and librettist Glen Nelson—reimagines Ambrose Bierce’s classic short story, “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge.” Performed by SALT Contemporary Dance, a Utah-based company of classically trained, artistically versatile dancers, the chilling tale unfolds through stunning choreography by Brendan Duggan, 2017 winner of the WMU National Choreography Competition.

The Bridge will receive three premiere performances at Kingsbury Hall in Salt Lake City on November 8–10, 2018. Purchase tickets here.
