very vary
Salt Lake City dance artist and University of Utah Assistant Professor, Molly Heller, will present her evening length work, "very vary," at the Shawl Anderson Dance Center December 2nd and 3rd, 2017. This piece chapters the remembered, imagined, and future lives of these six performers: Florian Alberge, Nick Blaylock, and Marissa Mooney; and, courtesy of Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company, Yebel Gallegos, Mary Lyn Graves and Melissa Younker. Throughout the work, Heller reveals the performers' biographies with both care and subtlety, while challenging the audience and space with rapid delivery. With a love for decoration and complications within choreographic structure, Heller enlivens the space by framing created scenes. These framed moments allow the performers and audience to enter into a scenario where story-telling emerges. These scenarios, much like chapters of a pop-up book, evoke a dimensional narrative that is at times both literal and nonsensical. "very vary" will also include collaborations with composer Mike Wall, visual artist Gretchen Reynolds, and print maker Kate Thomas.

Dates and Time:
-Saturday, December 2nd, 8pm (post show Q&A with Heller and cast, moderated by Katie Faulkner)
-Sunday, December 3rd, 3:30pm
