Underscore Dance Lab is rooted in discovery and research. A common interest in movement exploration and complexities of perspective. Underscore begins with one primary objective and that is the radical, progressive and liberal exploration of the human form and how it can articulate, define, assert and interpret. We aim to explore the juxtaposition of perspective. We urge our audiences to explore the concept of perspective and to challenge themselves to step outside of their own experiences and see something new. We wish to challenge convention and bring to the forefront the unorthodox, the unfamiliar and the strange. While we hope that our audience has a deep and profound experience, we do not concern ourselves with their comfort. We wish to push our audience to the precipice of knowing and catapult them into the emotional and tumultuous journey of experience. We operate with the understanding that experience is the most vivid way of learning and we put ourselves into practice as research. We have no interest in appropriation, we have every interest in communication and exploration as a means of altering perspectives and comprehension. Ours is a large undertaking to realize but we remain vigilant that with research and investigation we can push those boundaries that confine us and our society.
