Project Tool in Set Free has been made possible thanks to:
Sweet Water Foundation, The Joyce Foundation, Links Hall, Ozuzu Dances & The Watering Can
SET FREE is the culminating performance series for artists working within SET composition and FREE improvisation. Over time, the structure has increased awareness and appreciation for each individual’s creative process and provided a space for emerging and experienced makers to weave their studio and performance practices together in developing this work. Artist and audience exchange was vital to the life of the series and we invite you to join us now for the final performances. (Courtesy of The Watering Can)
Project Tool is a group of independent collaborators across multiple art mediums who indulge in the learning process of building sprung wood dance floors. Onye Ozuzu acts as artistic director, choreographer and builder to envision what is learned physically, emotionally, and conceptually in the process of building has become the material used to craft the performance. This project stems from her fascination with the inter-relationships between body, task, and tool. (Learn more athttp://ozuzudances.com/index.php/projects/project-tool/)
