"Hungering Spirit of Invention and Collaboration: Charlotte does not reject tradition. I believe she feels grounded in it, and that grounding gives her great comfort. But that grounding-comfort also provides a platform from which to launch new and adventurous works. It provides a platform from which to invent. It creates an eagerness to collaborate—with writers like myself, with stand-up comics, with jazz musicians, with non-dancers. The list goes on. Charlotte is an artist who, because of these strengths, will find new forms."
David Kranes (Writer/Collaborator/Founding Artistic Director of the Playwrights' Lab at Sundance)
"Gravity” (2009), collaboration with music ensemble Figura and composer Jens Horsving, both out of Copenhagen, Denmark.

“Night Vision” (2005), collaboration with Composer, Jens Horsving and multi-media group, Epi staged at Takkelloftet, The Black Box Theater at the New Opera House in Copenhagen.

"Touching Fire”(2010), collaboration with writer, David Kranes and Architect, Nathan Webster, exploring the creative line between that which holds us back and that which is over the edge. Created on The Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company.
“Spelling love” (2000), collaboration with Danish Theater director, Erik Gottlieb, a longtime friend. This project was based on Sam Shepard's play "Savage Love" and was a two-part production - theater and then dance and staged at the "Kaleidoskop" Theater in Copenhagen.
“But, Seriously” (2011), collaboration between writer, David Kranes, Actor, Ethan Phillips and Architect, Nathan Webster. “…a dance which incorporates a stand-up comic seemed a unique idea. After all, dancers and comics share being on their feet in front of an audience.
The impulse we as urban humans have to add our mark, our understanding, indeed our own art to the natural world, is the point of departure from which this collaboration with artist Trent Call developed and unfolded.
"The Wedding" (2013) An exploration of the most public of private rituals. The performance explored the space of ritual at the Masonic Temple in Salt Lake City and was a collaborative and context-driven work where the artists and site itself generated many of the fundamental ideas for the project.
"FEAST" (2014) Feast spoke to palates and appetites, hunger and satiation, tradition and experimentation, shared customs and the private experience. We focused here on the table – word and object – both active and passive, simultaneously suggesting the possibility of clean slate, pause and decadence or… a striving for balance in the push and pull of human assembly. The production was staged out at the Great Saltair just outside of Salt Lake City. Collaborators on this project were Salt Lake City based actors Andra Harboldt and Robert Scott Smith, NYC-based writer Troy Deutsch, Danish composer and musician Jesper Egelund Pedersen and more.

"SPACE AS COLLABORATOR":
a Summer Intensive directed towards Designers, Dancers and Choreographers. In Five days we managed to produce 11 pieces by 24 artists and had three showings for the public. Participants came from Portland, Chicago, Allentown, Wichita, NYC, California, Vancouver and of course Utah. Participants worked collaboratively in five spaces for two days and then were switched around, given a new theme, a new team, a new space and another 48 hours to solve and present their work. Amazing creativity emerged and our intention is to build on this for next year.
