This first show of the Ririe-Woodbury's 49th season combines audience favorites and restaging of groundbreaking works.

"50 Years," by nationally renowned performance artist and choreographer Ann Carlson, is a take on the passage of time according to the perceptual calculations on the tribe. Carlson, currently an artist in residence at Stanford University, has received multiple awards for her work, including a 2010 American Masters Award.

Charlotte Boye-Christensen, Ririe-Woodbury's artistic director, will premiere "The Finish Line," inspired by the journey through a relationship.

"Lines to Read Between" is Australian John Utans' investigation of the ideas of images and landscapes by using images on TV screens throughout the stage.

Boye-Christensen's award-winning dance Turf" surrounds the idea of territorialism and how men and women approach the idea of space differently.

"GRID," by New York choreographer Brook Notary, has become an audience favorite at Ririe-Woodbury.

"FOUR" also marks the first season performance of dancer Mary Lyn Graves, who joins the company from Tulsa, Okla., where she danced with Tulsa Ballet.
