A Tale of Treason, Tragedy, and True Love…
During the height of the Civil War, a young man awaits his hanging for attempted arson.
As his mind races to his family and ideals, his battle for survival becomes a battle for self.
Commissioned by UtahPresents for its world premiere, this genre-bending dance and music performance – created by Salt Lake City natives Andrew Maxfield and Stuart Maxfield (singer/bassist of Fictionist) – retells Ambrose Bierce’s classic short story.
The chilling tale unfolds through stunning choreography by Brendan Duggan, 2017 winner of the WMU National Choreography Competition.
