Take a lunch break and be a part of a video shoot for Donna Uchizono Company

Help us fill our seats and be part of an upcoming performance at Walker!

Friday, March 27, 12:30pm in the Walker’s McGuire Theater

The Walker Art Center is hosting the New York-based Donna Uchizono Company for a one-week residency and three performances of Thin Air on April 2-4. In one section of the dance, there is a video image of audience members sitting in the seats of the McGuire Theater projected onto the back wall of the theater. You will be filmed as if you are watching the performance, and will appear as a mirror image of the audience who will be there on the actual performance evenings. 

We need people in the seats, so we hope you can join us. Also please pass along this invite to others that may want to participate. For your participation, we will provide lunch (pizza and salad) after the shoot on the stage of the McGuire Theater and a reduced price $10 ticket to come and see any of the Donna Uchizono Company dance performances!

“The haunting quality of Uchizono’s work shone through-a blend of small but gem-like virtuosic moments, rich metaphors, and unforgettable visual panache.” -Dance Magazine

Award-winning New York choreographer Donna Uchizono draws from the Buddhist tenet on emptiness to create a stunning new trio that combines iconic art-rock guitarist /composer Fred Frith’s densely intriguing score, the visceral power of her own unique movement vocabulary, and Michael Casselli’s ghostlike video imagery. Thin Air is a hypnotic experience that beautifully utilizes sound, simple yet brilliant scenic elements, and finely detailed movement that flows from the deliberate to the frenetic.  For tickets and information, go to walkerart.org.
