JUXT[a]POSE! is a performance series I've been conceptualizing for the past year. I first met with James Peniston, the Co-Founder of Studio 34, early last summer to set the wheels in motions for what I thought was to be PoSTOP, a series that had one season at the Painted Bride in early January of 2011. Nicole Bindler, curator of the StudioSeries at Studio 34, had just completed her curatorial tenure at Studio 34. James and I wanted to start something new for the Studio 34 community.

Picking up where Bindler left off, I wanted to create a series that was geared to support the work of more matured artists. When I say matured, I mean artists who have been making professional work for 8-10 years. All of the artists featured in J[a]P are veteran performers and artmakers. They all have a detailed understanding of their process, their vision, and the role their voices hold in the overall landscape of regional dance and performance.

The artists included in this year's inaugual J[a]P event are:
Marcel Foster, Eun Jung Choi, Meg Foley, Jillian Harris Farrell, Jungwoong Kim, and DJ Rucyl Mills.

This electric group of artists come from a diverse range of performance backgrounds. From classical to post-modern, they each add a very special, subtle flavor to the gumbo of movement forms that will be presented on April 14, 2012 at 7:30pm. I encourage you to google their names and learn more about them.

Show is 1h 30mins and will be immediately followed by a DANCE PARTY hosted by DJ RUCYL MILLS!
