Oni Dance

Oni Dance is a dance ensemble led by the choreographer and artistic director Maria Gillespie. The Los Angeles based pick-up company debuted in 2005 with performances at The Getty Center and REDCAT. Oni Dance uses artistic collaboration with dance artists, photographers, film makers, composers, musicians, costume designers, writers, lighting designers, and others as an integral part of its creation process. In late 2012 Maria Gillespie  relocated to Milwaukee, but continued to tour her company.
