Let ‘im Move You, a series of performance and installation works, is a continuation of jumatatu and Donte’s work within and in response to J-Sette’s movement vocabulary and Black queer performance aesthetics. In A Study, performed by the artists, J-Sette is a base of experimentation into the role of strategy both in dance making and social design. This Is a Success, the second performance work in the series, is a duet performed by jumatatu and dancer William Robsinon that explores notions of African-American exceptionalism as expressed through the middle class, Black American values reiterated in the J-Sette form. J-Sette’s rhythmic rigor and team-oriented execution of in-time formal improvisations allow the artists to flirtatiously tease their audiences through playful games of rhythm, pattern, and attention.
The two respective duets inform the larger group workLet ‘im Move You: This is a Formation, which will be performed at Abrons Arts Center October 10-12. Purchase tickets for Let 'im Move You: This is a Success and a Study and Let ‘im Move You: This is a Formation and receive a $5 discount on your order!
