An experimental solo. A translation of my body's poetics. I may or may not be a synesthete. In this piece I am tracing the reverberation of sound as it moves through my body as tactile sensation.Go to link
A duet of structured improvisation. Performed and conceived by Jessie Jeanne & Henoch Spinola In this collaborative project we’re interested in exploring the subtle energies of the other, allowing each impulse or sensation to pass through the surface of skin and rush through the entire nervous system as an inspiration for movement. Our energies change like the weather, rearranging the context of the other, moment to moment, breath to breath.Go to link
Solo work which has departed from Jessie’s research on how her experiences of synesthesia and misophonia have influenced her creative practice.
A contemporary dance sextet which draws inspiration from the second movement of Henryk Gorecki’s Symphony of Sorrowful Songs, particularly the libretto for solo soprano. Our collective gestures and movements serve to design a physical language which weaves together elements of our personal and family history. This tapestry is a chance for us to embody the voices of our mothers and grandmothers, adding our non-verbal voices to the evolution of the feminine.Go to link
