Theatre in the Desert

The Utah Theatre Conference

In the desert, nature has created a very different, but no less beautiful living system. And while this arid landscape may seem lifeless, it is very much alive.

I just got back from exhibiting at the Utah Theatre Association conference in St. George, Utah. Normally I’d post some photos from the conference itself, but this time I wanted to share the geography of the surrounding area. I was fortunate to stay with a friend of ours who has a vacation home in the city and she took me on a tour of the area.

St. George is a desert city surrounded by beautiful vibrant red mountains.

The city has a strong connection to the arts, and they’ve even built a beautiful outdoor theatre with a stunning mountain backdrop.

I never realized how rich and diverse a desert can be. At first glance, much of it looks monochromatic, but eventually the rich subtle details emerge.
