Enquiring Minds: Fourteen Centuries of Questions and Answers @ Marriott Library - J. Willard (M LIB)
Mar 17 – Apr 30 all-day
Enquiring Minds: Fourteen Centuries of Questions and Answers @ Marriott Library - J. Willard (M LIB) | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Humans have been compiling information to answer an infinity of questions for thousands of years. From Ptolemy to Izaak Walton, the best minds have annotated, edited, translated, measured, arranged, and defined what it means to live a life of wonder.

From facsimiles of medieval encyclopedias, almanacs and atlases to first editions of fifteenth through twentieth century dictionaries, manuals, lexicons, compendiums, and directories, Rare Books celebrates questions and the attempts to answer them.

Keep on asking!

Specific Abject @ Rio Gallery
Mar 17 – May 12 all-day
Specific Abject @ Rio Gallery | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

The artists in this exhibition-Jared Clark, Christopher Lynn, Abraham Kimball, Allan Ludwig, Joseph Penrod, and Jean Richardson-each have a unique take on the possibilities of painting, or the possibilities of how painting’s mores can be used to frame other practices. Looking at an artwork through the lens of painting is to consider the work as painting, even if many of its elements do not sit neatly within painting’s core competencies. Conversely, looking at painting through the lenses of sculpture, performance, video, or other disciplines also reveals fertile ground to explore new opportunities.

National Theater Live presents “Twelfth Night” @ Broadway Centre Cinemas |  |  |

Tamsin Greig is Malvolia in a new twist on Shakespeare’s classic comedy of mistaken identity.

A ship is wrecked on the rocks. Viola is washed ashore but her twin brother Sebastian is lost. Determined to survive on her own, she steps out to explore a new land. So begins a whirlwind of mistaken identity and unrequited love.
The nearby households of Olivia and Orsino are overrun with passion. Even Olivia’s upright housekeeper Malvolia is swept up in the madness. Where music is the food of love, and nobody is quite what they seem, anything proves possible.
Simon Godwin (NT Live: Man and Superman, NT Live: The Beaux’ Stratagem) directs this joyous new production with Tamsin Greig (Friday Night Dinner, Black Books, Episodes) as a transformed Malvolia. an ensemble cast that includes Daniel Rigby (Flowers, Jericho), Tamara Lawrence (Undercover), Doon Mackichan (Smack the Pony) and Daniel Ezra (The Missing, Undercover).

Chama will feature several very special guests, including world-renowned dance artist Rosangela Silvestre. Between performances in London, Montreal, Geneva, Zurich, Paris, and Tokyo, Rosangela will be stopping in Salt Lake City to perform a solo in Samba Fogo’s concert.

Guest vocalists, soprano Kristin Jensen and tenor Jerry Maymi, will join Samba Fogo singer Solange Gomes and singer-guitarist George Brown, who hail from São Paulo, and Brasilia, Brazil.

Silent Sky @ Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center
Apr 29 @ 7:30 pm
Silent Sky @ Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Pygmalion Theatre Company’s season continues with “Silent Sky” by Lauren Gunderson, directed by Mark Fossen, which plays April 28 through May 13. The show features Brenda Hattingh, Hannah Minshew, Elizabeth Golden, Michael Scott Johnson and Teresa Sanderson.
“Silent Sky,” tells the true story of 19th century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt, which plays out against a landscape of fierce sisterly love, early feminism, universe-revealing science, and a time when humans were called “computers.”
When Henrietta Leavitt begins work at the Harvard Observatory in the early 1900s, she isn’t allowed to touch a telescope or express an original idea. Instead, she joins a group of women “computers,” charting the stars for a renowned astronomer who calculates projects in “girl hours” and has no time for the women’s probing theories. As Henrietta, in her free time, attempts to measure the light and distance of stars, she must also take measure of her life on Earth, trying to balance her dedication to science with family obligations and the possibility of love.

Because of a lack of comprehensive healthcare coverage, often those with the least financial resources are shut out from getting the abortion access they need. Reproductive healthcare is stigmatized and withheld from communities historically affected by systemic racism, economic inequality, and gender injustice. The government not only doesn’t provide coverage of abortion, but is actively working to make it harder and more expensive. That’s why we’re lacing up our dancing shoes and supporting our community by redistributing small donations from those who can afford to give to those who need help bridging the gap to access their abortion rights. Strengthen the network and donate to the National Network of Abortion Funds Rock-a-Thon!

Fundraise for the National Network of Abortion Funds and join us in making abortion more than legal—but truly possible.
