Inspired by a 12-year struggle to adopt a Nepalese child, Fire Underground, by internationally renowned New York choreographer Donna Uchizono, explores the emotional space that opens up while waiting, interminably, for an uncertain outcome. Fire Underground is about creating space for an audience to feel the impact of the absence that arises when longing endures, making it an unsettling work which may leave its mark.
