Hosted in collaboration with RIFF/The School of Contemporary Dance and Thought, this bi-annual series is an opportunity to see new dance work by recognized artists in the field and a chance for artists and the greater community to be in discussion about the process of dance and art making. Each event will include the two artist mentors participating in the current JUMP as well as 3 to 5 additional guest artists/thinkers from interdisciplinary backgrounds.
Each JUMP/Talk consists of a short performance by one or more featured artists followed by a facilitated panel discussion/talkback. During this time audience and community members will be active participants of inquiry as we discuss and learn from each others methods of practice.
The first two JUMP talks are currently scheduled for Oct 3rd (Politics of Space) at Massachusetts College of Art, Boston and January 16th at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston.
