Welcome to UMAMI

UMAMI performance creates movement metaphors grounded in the extraordinariness of the everyday. Commitment to depth of process, the collaborative, intimate nature of their work and the mindful blending of set and improvised performance are defining features of UMAMI performance’s aesthetic as they explore the questions that make them who they are. Brought together by shared interests in improvisation, natural physicality, dynamic partnering, and the subtlety of human relationship, the collaboration continues to grow through a strong interest in the meeting of set and improvised material and the challenge of creating clear and cohesive story-telling within the rawness and immediacy of improvisation.
