Read Acclaim for “Hold” Created for Repertory Dance Theatre in The Utah Review

Pruitt’s recent work Hold commissioned by Salt Lake City’s Repertory Dance Theatre got rave reviews. This work premiered virutally in February 2022 and will be presented live in their 2022/23 Season in the Jeanne Wagner Theater.

“The rhythmic foundations shift as the music builds an arch and Pruitt replicates this with impressive effect in the dancers. The dance artists open up the movement space, replicating clearly the crossovers suggested in the music. Pruitt succeeds at heightening the already profound emotional foundation of the music, most notably at the melodic peak of the music where the bass line has been stripped out and the movement takes on a near-ethereal floating sensation. The company responded fully to the poignant demands of this outstanding interpretation.” – Les Roka of The Utah Review
