The Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events will present Project Tool, a new dance performance by Onye Ozuzu.
Supported by Rebuild Foundation at the Dorcherster Art + Housing Collaborativ as a residency, Project Tool is a dance performance in which Onye Ozuzu and the creative team have been building a collection of sprung wood dance floors.
Within Project Tool, dancers explore, through the process of using hand held tools and legacy processes, the relationship between mind, body and tool. Through the research of building a wood, sprung dance floor, the dancers collaborate with tools as if they are partners in a dance with the body. The practical making of the space through sawing, hammering, sanding, and nailing has unearthed an improvisational landscape in which tasks, tools, and body inform and form the dance.
Project Tool will be performed in the Garland Gallery, first floor of the Chicago Cultural Center, 78 E. Washington Street, February 2nd and 3rd at 7pm and February 9th at 6pm. The three performances are free and open
to the public!
