12 Minutes Max is a curated monthly performance series featuring short works by local artists in many disciplines.

it foot, it ears embraces polyrhythm, microtonality, prepared instruments, and junk.  As a duo, Nick Foster and Jason Rabb use bottom-feeder instruments (electric guitar and percussion) to create chamber/garage music that has been described as both delicate and visceral.  SLUG Magazine noted, “it foot, it ears prove their unmatched accomplishments in technical ability, compositional intricacy and, above all, personality and wit.”


Rachel White will screen her poem-on-video “Return of Water”, written for the Great Salt Lake anthology Consecrate/Desecrate, and published by Great Salt Lake Collaborative. The poem's first line "Every city has its own light" is a paraphrase of something the architect Frank Gehry said in an interview. Rachel writes: “I admire the way his work honors the various qualities of light with designs particular to their place.” Rachel makes poems to praise the more than human world, and question the social relations destroying it.  Her work has been published in anthologies and journals, broadcast on radio, and included in the liner notes of a classical pianist's album.  A chapbook, the velvet earth after rain, is forthcoming as part of the current Poet Laureate, Lisa Bickmore's Mobile Micropress Project.  Find an award-winning short poem, Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty, and more at rachelwhitepoetry.org.

Cellist Mathew Heckmann and dancer Lexi Hauck will present “Jaq Butterfly", a piece in which sound informs movement, and movement creates sound, the resulting work mirroring a cycle of change similar to that of a butterfly. Matthew Heckmann publishes his solo music under the moniker “Heckmann”, is a collaborator in several musical projects including local punk rock group DAIRY LOBBY, and organizes silly events (Grilled Cheese pop-ups, Show and Tell Craft Fair, Spaghetti Rave) through his organization “Noodle Palace”. His website is www.ripstickfacts.com and his instagram handle is @noodled00d <3. Lexi is originally from the East Coast. Since earning her BFA in Modern Dance from the University of Utah, she teaches creative movement in local elementary schools and makes as many dance works as she can get her hands on. You can find her on instagram as @lexisdancestagram.

This program is modeled after 12 Minutes Max, a performance laboratory originated by On the Boards in Seattle.

About the branch

NOTE: The Main Library's Rooftop Terrace is closed for renovations.

Salt Lake City's Main Library, designed by internationally-acclaimed architect Moshe Safdie in conjunction with VCBO Architecture, opened in February 2003 and remains one of the most architecturally unique structures in Utah. This striking 240,000 square-foot structure houses more than 500,000 books and other materials, yet serves as more than just a repository of books and computers. It reflects and engages the city's imagination and aspirations. The structure embraces a public plaza, with shops and services at ground level, reading galleries above, and a 300-seat auditorium.

A multi-level reading area along the Glass Lens at the southern facade of the building looks out onto the plaza with stunning views of the city and Wasatch Mountains beyond. Spiraling fireplaces on four floors resemble a column of flame from the vantage of 200 East and 400 South. The Urban Room between the Library and the Crescent Wall is a space for all seasons, generously endowed with daylight and open to magnificent views.
