ABOUT THE WORKS
Shannon Murphy will share her dance quintet, "Feet Amass", in which she and four other dancers wrestle with the capacity of unison within choreography to create a performance community within the scope of a single dance work. She also presents "Multiplicity of Me", a trio for three women last seen in a shared show with Gina Hoch-Stalls RealLivePeople. "Multiplicity of Me", also interested in problematizing unison choreography, looks at intersections of movement and text among performers as a tool to explore a shared performance autobiography. Jumatatu Poe's "Salt" and "Let im Move You: This is a Success" both examine the performance of Blackness, inside of the pressure cooker of African-American exceptionalism ideologies. "Salt", part performance art installation, part dance work, is a solo performed by Poe - wrapped in a plastic loincloth, wearing Black sclera contact lenses, keeping time in relationship to an incessant digital metronome. "Let im Move You" is a duet performed by two Black men, steeped in J-Sette movement vocabulary and codes of relationality. J-Sette, with roots in majorette-style dance from historically Black colleges and universities, is an underground dance style popular in the Southern gay Black club scene. The untitled collaboration between Murphy and Poe is the newest work being presented, and deals with the lineage of the 8-year friendship between the two artists, the complexities of presentation lining up in the respective bodies of a Black, queer cis-man and a White, femme cis-woman.
