Fire Underground and State of Heads

Donna Uchizono Company (DUC) presents new and reworked eveninglength works. Fire Underground, DUC’s newest work, draws from Uchizono’s harrowing experience of a complex international adoption process. Featuring a cast of five performers, the multi-layered work is designed as a series of “salon” style performances that illuminate the complex crises of our time and the interconnections that bind us as we witness the courage to be human. State of Heads, a work for three dancers that premiered at Dance Theater Workshop in 1999 and was last seen on the New York Live Arts stage last April as part of Live Ideas: The Worlds of Oliver Sacks, features an original sound-score by “Bessie” award-winning artist James Lo and explores the concept of disjointedness and the passage of time.

Not appropriate for Children under 11.
