Donna Uchizono Company: Butterflies from My Hand

A presentation of The Sharon Disney Lund Dance Series.

A quickly rising star in the dance world, Donna Uchizono and her New York company make their Los Angeles debut with Butterflies from My Hand, a provocative and richly physical dance theater project described by The New York Times as "an exciting hour-long theatrical tempest." Uchizono's unique movement vocabulary is inspired by personal experiences of resistance, loss, power and uncertainty in this dance utilizing striking visual imagery to guide its kinetic direction. Set to a forceful and multilayered soundscore by Bessie Award-winning composer Guy Yarden, Butterflies' New York premiere prompted The Village Voice to write, "sometimes you see a work so uniquely itself and so perfect in itself that you hope you'll never forget it. Like Donna Uchizono's Butterflies from My Hand."
