Repertory Dance Theatre celebrates 52 years of revolutionary modern dance with their annual fundraiser and performance, ‘Regalia,’ on February 24, 2018 at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center.
Returning for the third year, ‘Regalia’ features choreographers creating new work in just a matter of hours. This year, RDT is thrilled to have choreographers from across the country who submitted work to be considered for the honor. Marty Buhler, Bryn Cohn, Laja Field & Martin Durov (‘Lajamartin’), and Molly Heller will compete for votes from audience members to be awarded a chance to create a new commission for RDT’s 2018-2019 season.
There are two pricing options for ‘Regalia.’ VIP ticket holders ($75) will be invited to enjoy an exclusive pre-show cocktail party with heavy hors d’oeuvres and cocktails from Utah Food Services. Performance ticket holders ($50) will arrive at 7 pm to peruse auction items, enjoy a drink at the bar, and wander the studios to watch the final touches put on the choreography.
All audience members will enter the theatre at 8 pm to see each piece performed. Afterward, audience members will vote using “bidding paddles” in the theatre to raise money for a commission to be completed next season as well as for RDT’s celebrated free school outreach that reaches over 25,000 students and teachers in Utah every year.
Afterward, all are invited on to the Jeanne Wagner stage to enjoy delectable desserts from Utah Food Services and dance the night away to the sounds of the Joe Muscolino Band.
