We aim to deliver a message of hope to people that have lost their identity to political and cultural divisiveness

NU•TOPIA was produced in collaboration with The University of Utah dance department led by Melonie Buchanan Murray PhD., and graduate student James Wallace. Choreographer/lead dancer Amy Anderson was also integral to the collaborative process and outcome of the show.  NU•TOPIA features Ashley Chin-Mark, a company artist and marketing specialist with James Sewell Ballet in Minneapolis, MN.  Ashley is incredible in her portrayal of John Lennon. Gregory Gonzales and Amy Anderson are both from the Colorado Ballet and play Mr. K. and Mr. K’s Muse/Higher-Self.  Sisters Elyssa and Jaqui Edgerly from Carbondale, CO are the featured Silk and Lyra aerialists.  Dancers from The University of Utah enacted the Inner Self/Skeleton Crew. Additional dancers from the U of U Dance Department round out our beautiful and talented ensemble.


We are using our combined talents to remind people of their essential divine nature through the iconic music of The Beatles and the wisdom of John Lennon
