Lion’s Jaw is a new performance and dance festival produced by New Movement Collaborative + Green Street Studios that assembles a group of national choreographers, performers, educators and students to study, perform and create together for duration in an intensive environment.
For 5 days, every day, from 9am until 10pm, Lion’s Jaw will run inside a dedicated space utilizing multiple studios to foster the exchange of ideas, daily rigorous technical training and inter-disciplinary exploration to provide dance-artists tools and pathways into new ways of engaging with dance as both research and performance.
Anchored by two intensives, each day will also include back to back classes in improvisation, technique and composition, as well as informal workshops on everything from voice, music, costuming and film. In the evenings, artists, students and audiences will share their knowledge and inspiration through jams, discussions, informal showings and performances.
Lion’s Jaw was built out of a desire to bring artists together. To work in close proximity. For dance-artists to spend time in duration together sweating and performing. To catalyze a small change inside of ourselves, to learn from each other and to swap toolboxes with one another around performance and dance. We feel Boston is primed and ready to host this experience, as a mid-sized city with art-centric momentum
