A Sage Passage

PostcardFront_Uchizono_SagesSafePassage_1993

 

 

The first half of this performance included "Improvisations," performed by Uchizono and composer Tom Cora; and "The Wayne Brothers (1991)," performed by Uchizono and Nikki Castro with music by Cora.  The second half was the world premiere of "A Sage Passage," where four guest performers over the age of 55 joined Uchizono's company of four to explore the question of time that questions the glorification of youth in American culture.  In one instance, the dancers were naked, the full frontal nudity designed to be confrontational as well as an expression of vulnerability.  Tom Cora accompanied this piece with an ensemble of four to play his original score.
