Founder of his own company, TAKE Dance, former Paul Taylor company member, guest performer with Hirabayashi Dance, and baseball player in Japan before studying at Juilliard, choreographer Takehiro 'Take' Uemaya has created a work of powerful athleticism for Juilliard's 1st-year dancers. "Nakamuraya" honors the memory and performing genius of Kanzaburo Nakamura, Japan's remarkable Kabuki master, who Take most admired. The dancers become a 1st-time ensemble company at Juilliard as they interpret Take's dynamic and expressive movement.
Juilliard New Dances PLUS: Edition 2013 runs for 5 performances only, December 11 -- 15 at The Juilliard School in NYC.
