UC Irvine Today
Radical Time Travel
Interdisciplinary performance artist and director Denise Uyehara shares insights into her recent collaborative projects: Shooting Columbus, Suenos y Siluetas, and the Hanagasa Triptic. Using projected light over the body as a metaphor for how our memories change and drift over time, she explores immigration, Indigenous sovereignty and our cultural collisions with one another. She is a fourth-generation “settler” in the Americas, of Okinawan and Japanese descent. Through her dreamlike, haunting and sometimes funny performances, Uyehara invites us into a universe where we can grapple with our contradictions and re-imagine social change.
