Glimpse, a performance by NOW-ID
The Utah Museum of Contemporary Art was honored to present a performance by Salt Lake City’s newest contemporary dance company NOW-ID on September 19th as a significant enrichment to the exhibition Bikuben currently in the Main Gallery.
Exploring the intersection of Utah and Danish heritage, UMOCA’s current major exhibition Bikuben brings together a variety of art forms from some of the most significant Danish artists working today. Drawing from the concepts of identity found in the works, Danish choreographer Charlotte Boye-Christensen captures themes of home, belonging and identity in this one night performance.
“Identity plays a crucial part in my work,” says Boye-Christensen. “I moved away from Copenhagen at a very young age and formed my understanding of myself as an artist through my travels but I am still Danish – this exhibition inspired me to look at what that actually means.”
