This evening of performance features work by six of the Lion's Jaw festival artists:

His performances engage improvisation, ritual, collaboration, and public action as tools for investigating political realities. Practices inspired by anarchism, critical whiteness, post/Modern dance, activist art, the Bay Area, wicca, punk, contact improvisation, and queer-feminism motivate and mobilize Hennessys work.

Joy Mariama Smith is a native Philadelphian currently based in Den Haag, NL. Their work primarily addresses the conundrum of projected identities in various contexts. A sub-theme, or ongoing question in their work is: What is the interplay between the body and its physical environment?

Alice Gosti is an Italian-American choreographer, hybrid performance artist, curator and architect of experiences, working between Seattle and Europe since 2008. Dance Magazine has described Gostis work as unruly yet rigorous, feminine yet rebellious, task-like yet mischievous.
