NOW-ID presented our inaugural Salt Lake City premiere RITE OF SPRING on June 22nd below 600 N on-ramp (500 w).

The project was officially announced on 2019's first day of spring and was performed on the summer solstice. The event responded to a very unique Salt Lake City site/context, and climaxed in choreography by Charlotte Boye-Christensen.
