EXODUS LAUNCH / by Nathan Webster

We are gearing up for our next big project 

A co-production with Copenhagen based music ensemble Figura, EXODUS will be developed in Salt Lake City and premiere here on July 28, 29, and 30th. We will then tour this SLC-created work to the prestigious Copenhagen Opera Festival in August.

EXODUS will bring together 15 local and international artists, original choreography, opera, music, design, and dance in a stunning site specific venue. The work will explore the implications of mass movement, both individually and collectively.

All funds raised this year through Love Utah Give Utah will go towards the EXODUS project and we need your help! 

Our goal is to raise $4321 in 24 hours. Ambitious – yes, impossible – no.

Please Donate now >

Today's success is based in part on how many people give, not just how much (The average is just $61). We love your support, and any donation you can give will be further appreciated via NOW-ID's awards program.
