Orchesis Dance Theatre presents BLOOM RISING
November 3 @ 7:30 PM - November 5 @ 8:15 PM
One event on November 5, 2022 at 2:00 PM
Weber State University’s Orchesis Dance Theatre is proud to present Bloom Rising, bringing local, international, and student choreographers together to share and inspire audiences of all ages and cultural backgrounds. Bloom Rising features a world premiere by Karlies Kelley, founder of Panadanza Dance Company, connecting her Afro-Panamanian roots to build a work focusing on Panamanian music, contemporary folk dance, and folklore mythology. In addition, Holly Jarvis, a pioneer in the aerial sling, will enthrall audiences with the beauty of her skills and artistry. In recent years there have been remarkable changes in how we see and share spaces. The performances will allow the audience to contribute to a shared experience, adding to a moving, reflective, and energizing program that looks at how together we blossom and grow as a community.
Bloom Rising will present a Saturday matinee with ASL interpretation. This performance will offer a uniquely inviting and accommodating performance experience for individuals with various needs, including young children and their families. Dance Program director Joseph Blake maintains that “inclusion and access are essential for the arts to exist.”
