Bessie and USA Artist award winner Donna Uchizono presents the world premiere of Wings of Iron, an evening-length work that examines what it takes to remain humane in these charged times. Investigating the “weight in-between,” the work provides a forum in which to share the weight of vulnerability that is simultaneously public and private. The detailed choreography unfolds a tough exterior over time allowing a new intimacy to emerge, leading to a deeper exploration of this question. Choreographed by Donna Uchizono in collaboration with performers Bria Bacon, Natalie Green, Molly Lieber, and Pareena Lim, Wings of Iron features an original score by composer okkyung lee and lighting design by Joe Levasseur.

Co-commissioned and co-presented by the Chocolate Factory Theater and Baryshnikov Arts Center.
