Denuo. (Latin) again. Contracted from dē novo, "from new"
Denuo was constructed over a three-week choreographic residency made possible by The Aspire Project and the James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation. Discussions surrounding accessibility in dance training, dance performance, and dance presentation elicited movement material that often passed through multiple bodies before settling on the presented form.
In conjunction with incorporating multiple perspectives and venues of accessibility through creation and observation, the audience was invited to chose to stay in their seats for the duration of the performance or to join the dancers onstage in the designated areas when prompted.
