The Bridge

Love and Loss in the Fringes of War

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 producer-composer Andrew Maxfield and composer-performer Stuart Maxfield and librettist Glen Nelson—reimagines Ambrose Bierce’s classic short story, “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge.” Performed by SALT Contemporary Dance, a Utah-based company of classically trained, artistically versatile dancers, the chilling tale unfolds through stunning choreography by Brendan Duggan, 2017 winner of the WMU National Choreography Competition.
