Hearst Choreographer-in-Residence Jumatatu Poe presents an informal showing of a new dance work, “terrestrial.”

Open to Princeton University students, alumni, faculty and staff.


JUMATATU M. POE is a choreographer and performer based between Philadelphia and New York City producing dance and performance work independently, as well as in collaboration with idiosynCrazy productions, a company he founded in 2008 and now co-directs. The company serves as a resource to produce public dialogues around the integrations of art into society and the social responsibility of the artist. For the past several years Poe has worked collaboratively with J-Sette artist Jermone Donte Beacham on a series of visual and performance works, Let ‘im Move You. He has performed his work in various cities throughout the U.S. and in Europe, and has received a number of awards including NEFA National Dance Project Production Grant, Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, MAP Fund, and National Performance Network/Visual Artists Network (NPN/VAN) Creation & Development Fund. From 2009-2018, he was an assistant professor of dance at Swathmore College. Previously, Poe danced with Marianela Boán, Silvana Cardell, devynn emory, Emmanuelle Hunyh, Tania Isaac, Kun-Yang Lin, C. Kemal Nance, Marissa Perel, Leah Stein, Keith Thompson, Kate Watson-Wallace, Reggie Wilson, Jesse Zaritt, and Kariamu Welsh/Kariamu & Company, and Merián Soto.

Alexander Street, between Lawrence Drive in Princeton and Canal Pointe Boulevard in West Windsor, will close for about six months beginning on Wednesday, November 6, 2019, for road construction.

Construction makes traveling to campus more time consuming. Traffic congestion from all routes to campus during peak times (weekdays, 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., and 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.) will be higher than normal. Drivers traveling to campus along Route 1 will see the greatest delays.
