has recently created SONDERimmersive with Co-Artistic Director, Rick Curtiss, and Owner, Molly Chrisman. Their work Thank You Theobromine ran for 8 weeks at the Chocolate Conspiracy in downtown, SLC and has been reworked and rebranded as The Chocolatier, opening as soon as the COVID19 crisis is abated.
A Utah Review of The Chocolatier from our preview weekend before everything shut down.
Graham has been an integral part of the SLC dance and performance scene for over 15 years. A graduate of the University of Utah Department of Modern Dance, he founded the collaborative improvisation performance group Movement Forum in 2003 with which he created new work, performed, and facilitated various community engagements locally and nationally for almost 10 years.
Graham’s artistic focus has since shifted to creating new immersive theatre works as well as choreographing for theatre. In 2017 his work Sonder occupied three stories of the Historic Eagle’s Hall building (The Bay nightclub; now café Molise) in Downtown SLC for a 6-week sold out run of shows to which many returned multiple times.
Graham has an MFA in dance from the University of Maryland, was an assistant professor of dance at Brigham Young University, and has performed nationally and internationally for several years with PEARSONWIDRIG DANCETHEATRE.
An avid artistic collaborator, recent partnerships have included directors- Christopher Clark, Morag Shepherd, and David Mortensen; composers- Nick Foster, Joel Brown, Michael Wall, and David Schulman; visual artist- Aundrea Frahm; producers- Sackerson; dance artists- Lehua Estrada, Danelle Hathaway, Breeanne Saxton, Michael Watkiss, and many many others; and most profoundly with his creative partner- writer and dramaturg, Rick Curtiss. There is however no more constant or humbling a daily collaboration than with his four children- Isobella, Oliver, Elliette, and Ana.
