Idaho Dance Theatre’s Bodies of Art, features the work of seven choreographers exploring the many diverse aspects of our lives and relationships, using the power of the human body, music and space to entertain, communicate and inspire.
Marla Hansen’s The Path to the hauntingly beautiful, piano music of Keith Jarret, follows three men as they explore life paths, with help from guardian spirits.
Anna Adaska’s new work is playful, energetic, and youthful, exploring how a person's sense of self is influenced by the labels they assign themselves.
Michael Burns work, For the Mothers, is inspired by real life experiences with Alzheimer’s disease. How do you aid a family member who loses their sense of self, in the final moments of their life?
This very moving piece chronicles the journey of loss; from the concluding moments with a beloved family member, to the joyous celebration of their life, and the near impossible task of moving on.

Ali Moto’s-Pivot Movement work, Hope Somewhere, reminds us that hope is something we have to believe in. It keeps us striving for a better world, and to be better people. Sometimes it can be hard to find, but it is there, somewhere.
Wait, just a Moment, is a new piece choreographed by Meaghan Novoa, with music by Michael Wall, in tribute to a close friend of the choreographer.

Choreographer Nathan Powell was inspired to create his newest work after reading Neil deGrasse Tyson's book: Astrophysics for People in a Hurry. Nathan says, “as a lowly being concerned with the matter and energy that I am comprised of, I thought to create a dance to tell my story and feeling of dark matter and energy.” The music is a fabulous cinematic symphonic band piece by composer John Heins. which leads to a dance of high-energy (dark energy?) balletic precision and fast paced foot work, a journey of exploration.

Choreographer Lemuel Reagan, contemplates the Universe and our human questioning from another point of view to music by Shostakovich and Rachmaninov. In his dance the origin and end of space and time are abstracted for enjoyment and consideration.

We are very excited to welcome back Jacob Ramey, Lighting Designer/Technical Director, creating his lighting magic for Bodies of Art.
