The fresh contemporary company to watch, SALT Contemporary Dance will perform an awe-inspiring mixed repertoire program featuring work by world-renowned choreographers including Micaela Taylor, Olivier Wevers, and SALT’s Joni McDonald. Backed by the technical mastery of SALT’s dancers, these pieces take audiences on a journey that explores self-discovery, reflects on the beauty of the natural world, and features music by Strauss, Bach, and Handel.
SALT showcases voices of progression and innovation by engaging choreographers from around the world to create original and accessible works. Drawing on the strong ballet technique and creative prowess of the seasoned performers, these choreographers experiment at the edges of what dance has been.
In just nine seasons SALT has already tripled in size and created a buzz not only nationally, but overseas. Concerts and events are routinely sold-out, surpassing expectations and breaking concepts of what audiences can expect from contemporary dance.
