The Union Project Dance CompanyAs an LA debut, Mariana Oliveira created “Fearing the Unknown”, a new work that features the collaboration between contemporary dance and live music, with original score created by composer Michael O. Hurwitz. “Fearing the Unknown” will explore the fears and anxieties that people develop along their lives. In this new project, we will explore our most common fears and how to break free from them. The dancers will experiment with different movements, and create their own dance phrases to represent their private fears. Dancers are being thrown and caught constantly throughout the choreography, so they are made to trust their partners and let go of technical fears. The choreography challenges dancers to explore their own feelings and to move without fearing the unknown, allowing their bodies to experience different forms of movements. Photo by Priscilla Lewis
