Azul Dance Theatre is contemporary dance company based in NY City founded by Artistic Director Yuki Hasegawa in 2004. Azul creates dances that make perceptible the invisible flow of energy known as “Chi” in Eastern Philosophy and culture. The company's works seek to express the dynamic relationship between individual self and cosmic force.
Azul's work has been recognized for Hasegawa's vision of creating works influenced by traditional Japanese Culture, but “vividly contemporary in feel.” Azul is a unique company in that the dancers come from very different countries and dance cultures, creating a fascinating group unified by their common ground of working with Hasegawa on movement as expressive intention and force.
Since 2004, the company has maintained a presence in NY, including recently a full-evening concert at the Salvatore Capezio Theater in 2013 (supported by the NYC/ Dance Response Fund), a half-evening at the Wave Rising Series at Dumbo Dance Festival, and shared performances at venues such as The United Nations Auditorium, DiCapo Opera Theater, Frederick Loewe Theater, Merce Cuningham Studio, Dance New Amsterdam, Theater for the New City, Dixon Place, Green Space, and the American Dance Guild Festival at the 92nd Street Y. In 2014, Azul Dance Theater will present two new works, NIGHT RAINBOW, and BEYOND THE WATERFALL, and will reprise FLOWERS ON THE DESERT.
