LET ‘IM MOVE YOU: THIS IS A FORMATION
February 9 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm$10 – $20
This Is a Formation is the latest dance performance project in Jumatatu M Poe and Jermone “Donte” Beacham ’s Let ‘im Move You series, a collection of performance and visual works centered around the artists’ explorations with the J-Sette form.
Formation brings together seven Black dancers, a DJ, and a lighting designer as performers for the work. The audience travels within the performance space with relative freedom, sharing the same spaces as performers. Live captured video design elements will focus on hyper-close-up capture of the performers for display on hanging panels throughout the space.
