Interviews and Articles
Artist-in-residence spotlight, 2022 April
ArtStarts: Can you tell us about your project during your residency?
Sarah U: My project titled “Forthcoming” explores how the glorification of overstimulation and overconsumption will shape and transform our bodies in 300 years from now. This work is a collaboration between myself and the machine learning process (VOS system). This project centers on speed, dynamism and restlessness of the modern body.

Member spotlight, 2021 July
The Dance Centre: How would you describe dance’s impact on your life?
Sarah U: I think the most fulfilling moments in my short 22 years on Earth are related/connected to dance in one way or the other. Sometimes it is feeling grounded in a contact improvisation class on a Monday morning ;and sometimes it is the final bow on the last performance night; it is presenting a work and it is watching my students on stage etc. This is very cliche to say… but dance makes me happy and I think it somehow helps me find my place and purpose. I remembered getting a spine injury when I was 13 and I felt like it was the end of the world because dance was the only thing I kind of knew how to do. Now I can imagine myself doing different things, but I do not envision a future where dance and creation is not a major part of my life.
