Donna Uchizono, alongside artists Joanna Kotze, Antonio Ramos, and Jordan Lloyd, will offer a series of dance dedications exploring the body’s expansive capacity to listen. Grounded in the question—"if you were to dedicate a dance to a person, who would that be?"—the dancers invite the audience to talk about someone they would like to dedicate a dance to in a mutually vulnerable exchange, anchored by the weight of trust and intimacy.
