HOME was a showcase for the University of Chicago dance company, UC Dancers. It explored the many changing relationships we have with the concept of "home".
WHAT IS HOME?
As the executive and co-artistic director of UC Dancers, the University of Chicago's longest-running dance company, I produced, directed, choreographed, and performed in a 60-minute dance showcase, HOME. It focused on communicating what it means to have, lose, and search for a home through physical and verbal expression. The performance featured a cast of 22 dancers, a five-person stage crew, and four performers from another arts group I asked to perform with us. HOME was met with many positive reviews and attracted an audience of ~200 during its two-day run period.
My roles also included securing both the space and funding to produce the show. I met with multiple different student and staff administrative groups where I presented our proposal and budget for the show to encourage them to support our company's creative venture.
