"Seasons"
Living Legends

Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah

A Brilliant Family Show

Celebrating the native cultural heritage of North and South America and the South Pacific, "Seasons" is a vibrant spectacle of energy, music, costume and dance. As they take the stage, talented performers of native descent capture the rhythms of Polynesia, portray the fascinating legends of Native American people and dazzle the senses with the energy of Latin America. Both the lavish costumes and the intricate choreography are authentic represntations of the showcase cultures.

In a performance of extravagant dancing, culturally-inspired music and intricate costumes, Brigham Young University’s Living Legends celebrates the Latin American, Native American, and Polynesian cultures in their show, Seasons. All Living Legends members are of Native American, Latin American, or Polynesian heritage.

Spectacular choreography, colourful costumes, and heart-pounding music bring to life the skill, beauty and authenticity of these traditional cultures. From the graceful Hawaiian Hula and Mexican Fiesta dances to the excitement and beauty of a Native American Pow Wow, this year’s Living Legends performance reflects the cycle of civilizations through the portrayal of changing seasons and weaves together legends of the past with the reality of today. Living Legends has showcased in many countries over the previous years – In 2015 season, their performance of Seasons toured the cities of New Mexico, British Columbia, and Alaska. This year, they’ll be reaching out with their performances in Samoa, New Zealand and Tonga.

One of the main goals of Living Legends is to encourage all to take pride in their individual heritage and to continuously to better themselves, as illustrated by a statement from the Office of Culture in Guatemala: ―’Your performance was wonderful. Your presence here teaches our people something—to have high ideals and to walk proud as a people. We hope this community will not be the same after tonight’. From another show in Managua, Nicaragua, President Santo Rene Nunez Tellez said, “A culture does not die when it dies; it dies when it is forgotten. Your show rescues culture and heritage.”

Living Legends originates in the Department of Dance, College of Fine Arts and Communications, at
Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. BYU is one of the nation’s largest private universities with an enrolment of just under 30,000 students from the United States and 100 foreign countries. It is owned and operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
