Making Dance explores our relationship to dance as a viewer and a maker through observation, dialogue and making. Known for creating a new vocabulary with each new work, Donna Uchizono revels in sharing the process of revealing one's artistic voice.
I am interested in offering opportunities for the dance maker to look, experience, dialogue, create, "fail/succeed" and experience; revealing frameworks or structures derived from one's own concepts, history, embodiment or through the work itself. Through the daily practice of dance making, we develop awareness of the concerns that drive one's own work and identify concerns in the work of others; journey through the discovery of methods from one's own thought process, concepts, history and/or embodiment or the work itself; explore "interruption" and "distillation", examine the possibility of 'universal' moments; discourse dance's potential to engage in contemporary issues, while leaning towards a more informed artistic voice using "dance" as the question and answer" verbally, physically and philosophically. -Donna Uchizono
