12 Minutes Max is a monthly showcase of short works and works-in-progress by local artists in many disciplines.

12 Minutes Max is a year-round monthly performance series featuring short works by local artists in many disciplines. One Sunday a month, we present three original pieces in a varied mix, chosen from music, dance, film, writing, theater, performance art, and the like—each 12 minutes or less. The whole event is short and sweet, taking about an hour.

After each month's performances, coffee and cookies are served — a time for conversation and feedback.


DECEMBER 16 PERFORMANCES

We will hear music from Nymph, Sophie Blair’s lyrically raw, string-based singer-songwriter project. Classically trained on both viola and piano, they’ve composed, recorded, and contributed strings, songwriting, and/or vocals for several musicians and groups, including Mindy Gledhill, Emily Brown, Sen Wisher, Stuart Wheeler (Quiet House), Officer Jenny, Grove, Detective Deckard, DEXO (Deseret Experimental Opera Company), and Avant Vespers. After performing for close to two years with Provo-based band Grove, Sophie now writes, performs, and records strings for Mindy Gledhill and heads Nymph.


Conor C. Long will present his claymation screen dance Groggy Grugg, "about that terrible every day struggle to get out of bed for that first delicious cup of coffee." Conor is a Utah based filmmaker who specializes in genre films and animation. He’s spent his life shooting films all over the world, and recently received an MFA in Film & Media Arts from the University of Utah.


Dream summoner and space clown, Dream Meli, will perform her piece, The Presubjective Switch of the Dejective Witch, “an exploration of the edges of primal repression and the raptures of bottomless memory through sound, movement, and costume”. Dream Meli, who sometimes claims to have been born in multiple realms at the same time, first appeared to the public in this dimension in bars and warehouses in Salt Lake City performing with the Bad Kids Collective. She is currently the central facilitator of a weekly all ages variety show called Operation Gender Juice and another monthly one called Moth Closet. She also started and helps run the Forbidden Fruits, an experimental cabaret collective, and besides frequently performing and helping others perform, she has written at least four books of "poetry" and has created well over a hundred online "memes."


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

About the library

Salt Lake City's Main Library, designed by internationally-acclaimed architect Moshe Safdie (see related titles in our catalog) 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 six-story curving, walkable wall embraces the 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. A roof-top garden, accessible by walking the crescent wall or the elevators, offers a 360 degree view of the Salt Lake Valley. 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.
