NOT ONE DROP @ Plan-B Theatre in the Studio Theatre at the Rose Wagner Perfoming Arts Center
Mar 23 all-day
NOT ONE DROP @ Plan-B Theatre in the Studio Theatre at the Rose Wagner Perfoming Arts Center | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Intimacy, identity, power, life, death.
A fall, a push, a murder.
A sideways glance at the roles we play
To convince ourselves we are(n’t)
Who we think we are.

(or)

If Caryl Churchill and Sarah Kane were to have a literary baby.
This would be that baby.
A weird wacky baby.

‘LABELED’ Sound OFF @ Natural History Museum of Utah
Mar 23 @ 7:30 pm – 11:00 pm
'LABELED' Sound OFF @ Natural History Museum of Utah | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Break the ice. Break the stigma.

The ‘Labeled’ Film Festival invites you to a free event, Sound OFF – A unique film and dance party for college and university students. The comfortable social environment encourages discussion on a normally taboo subject – mental illness.

Ask questions. Question the stereotypes.

1 in 5 adults in the US suffer from severe or persistent mental illness each year. Factoring anxiety, depression, behavior regulation, and thoughts of suicide, mental illness happens to people you know.

Create conversation. Create compassion.

Get involved and help us form a community of peer support and intervention. Let friends know you’ve got their back, whatever life challenges bring.

Drop your guard. Drop the labels.

Someone close to you may be suffering in silence with a mental illness. Insensitive “labels” perpetuate stereotypes, myths and stigmas.

Sound OFF? Sounds great!

But hey, let’s keep it light, huh? Come and check out our unique dance party powered by headphones playing 3 channels with a choice of music or film. Watch, dance or discuss. Films–shorts will project on the walls of the dance hall. If you feel like chatting just remove the headphones and talk with friends. Capture the moment of the film festival with the Slow Motion Time Machine. Share experiences and meet mental health advocates. Reserve headset today. Admission to Sound OFF is free. For the full festival schedule go to www.labeledfilmfestival.org. Like, share, follow, and comment this event and @Labeled Film Festival.

Presented by Alliance House. Produced by NewEra.Media

Water in the West: Exploring Untapped Solutions – Wallace Stegner Center 22nd Annual Symposium @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law
Mar 24 @ 8:00 am – 12:45 pm
Water in the West: Exploring Untapped Solutions - Wallace Stegner Center 22nd Annual Symposium @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

The Stegner Center’s 22nd Annual Symposium, to be held March 23 to 24, 2017, will focus on “Water in the West: Untapped Solutions.” The symposium will address how the twin drivers of climate disruption and demographic change are likely to impact water availability in the West over the next 50 years.

With these challenges as a backdrop, the Stegner Center’s solution-oriented symposium will focus on practical solutions to problems. Specifically, the Symposium will address four sets of issues: changing law—legal innovations to address these issues; changing science and the role of technology in improving data-driven water resource planning and management; changing infrastructure and new approaches like recycling wastewater; and changing behaviors—creating incentives that bring about the changes needed to respond to a dynamic world. The symposium will be interdisciplinary in nature and include speakers from the physical, biological and social sciences, academia, government, industry, public interest organizations, and the legal profession.

‘LABELED’ Film Festival @ Broadway Centre Theatre
Mar 24 @ 2:00 pm
'LABELED' Film Festival @ Broadway Centre Theatre | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

(Screening times vary each day. Please consult www.labeledfilmfestival.org for full program)

In a culture that stigmatizes people living with mental illness, ‘LABELED’ Film Festival challenges audiences to understand the person behind the labels. Stereotypically, movies portray those with mental illness as outcasts, debilitated, isolated, dependent, dangerous, unpredictable, comedic, annoying and incompetent. ‘LABELED’ strives to humanize them as, chances are, you know someone who is touched by mental illness.
‘LABELED’ will showcase thought-provoking films that explore mental health issues from numerous perspectives. It’s designed to bring together a community of health providers, government agencies, educators, policy makers, caregivers, and individuals who want to better understand and support those with mental illness.

Please see our opening social event, the ‘LABELED’ Sound OFF, 23 March, at the Natural History Museum of Utah, posted separately on this site.

Alliance House is the host of ‘LABELED’. For 30 years, they have championed psycho-social programs for those living with Severe Persistent Mental Illness (SPMI). Alliance House members have the unique opportunity to connect into a supportive and collaborative community to rebuild their confidence and have purpose.

Opening Reception: Gary Jacobson and Justin Chouinard @ Utah Museum of Contemporary Art
Mar 24 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Opening Reception: Gary Jacobson and Justin Chouinard @ Utah Museum of Contemporary Art |  |  |

Join UMOCA on March 24 from 6 – 9 p.m. for the opening of our two new exhibitions, Justin Chouinard’s These Ribbons Are Substratum and Gary Jacobson’s Some Thoughts. Following the artists’ talks, the Waterford School invites you to enjoy “At the Heart of Who We Are,” a conversation with photographer Burk Uzzle. After his discussion, filmmakers David Raymond and Jethro Waters will present their trailer for “f/11 and be there,” a feature length documentary about Burk.

Justin Chouinard introduces the ghosts of experience past in his exhibition, These Ribbons Are Substratum. Manipulating film slides and loops by hand, Chouinard exposes the skin of the image and reveals the bones of cinema. Examine wrinkled sheets of memory and images that are reminiscent pieces of light in the A-I-R Space from March 17 to April 22.

Gary Jacobson’s “Some Thoughts” is comprised of anthropomorphized animal sculptures that live within a mysterious narrative shaped by Jacobson’s subconscious. These animals, created from unfired clay, alternate between humor, empathy, and malice in a loosely rendered, dream-like wold that feels both familiar and foreign. Explore the exciting narratives of Jacobson’s creatures in the Projects Gallery from March 24 to May 6.

Burk Uzzle’s photographs are distinct—of a different place, time in our history, and social theme. For more information, visit burkuzzle.com

Children’s Dance Theatre’s Elfwyn’s Saga @ Janet Quinney Lawson Capitol Theatre
Mar 24 @ 7:30 pm
Children's Dance Theatre's Elfwyn's Saga @ Janet Quinney Lawson Capitol Theatre | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Inspired by Viking lore, Elfwyn’s Saga presents an enthralling tale of magic, greed, and heroism. During the early settlement of Iceland, a girl named Elfwyn is born blind after a curse is placed on her family. Guided and protected by the mysterious Hidden Folk, she learns to rely on other senses to perceive the world around her. When a rival Viking clan uses a treacherous magic to sow the seeds of discord among her family, Elfwyn’s gift of clear perception is all that stands between her community and its self-annihilation. An imaginative musical score and hundreds of dazzling costumes help the young dancers of the Children’s Dance Theatre bring this spectacular story to the stage.
