Jessie Jeanne & Dancers performs in London
Our recent trip to Chisenhale Dance Space in London with The Boston Touring Group was such a whirlwind experience, and happened so fast, that it feels right to take a moment to acknowledge just how awesome it was.
Thanks to generosity and recommendation of the James K. Spriggs Foundation, we were able to bring artists from Boston to show work internationally for the first time. In all, the project supported 7 dancers, 3 companies, 4 pieces of choreography, and a blossoming cross-cultural exchange program that aims to share ideas and cultural traditions through the medium of performance.
Danielle, Shura, Stephen, Larissa, Kat, Laura, Olivia and I had the privilege of coming together for the first time to produce a program. We know each other a lot better now, after traveling together, and we feel even more empowered to continue to persevere in our quest to share our art around the globe. In these times, we recognise that coming together to move, breathe, and share connection through verbal and non-verbal dialogues can be the key to opening new levels of understanding and communication. It seems that our work is more important now than ever.
This Fidelity Charitable grant is made possible through the generosity and recommendation of the James K Spriggs Foundation, a donor- advised fund.
