Sojourn of the Florid Muses is a piece born from a collaboration with the League of Utah Writers.  The choreographers were presented with a stack of writings and each picked one or two poems or short stories as inspiration for creating a dance or performance art work for this concert, which was a fundraiser for Another Language Performing Arts Company and for the League of Utah Writers.

Sarah Hudelson was inspired by Fire Within the Rose written by Kolette Montague. Her dance uses movement motifs to describe a sojourn, or temporary journey, through the art of putting words together (in this case movements) as directed by the muses within us.
