A Sage Passage




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 fifty-five joined Uchizono's company of four to question 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.
