On Monday, November 21, John Jasperse conducts an open rehearsal with Princeton student dancers of his 2014 work Within between followed by a Q&A with the choreographer and his stager Stuart Singer. The free event is in the Patricia and Ward Hagan ’48 Dance Studio at 185 Nassau Street. Princeton students are welcome beginning at 4:30 p.m., and the public is invited to observe beginning at 5:30 p.m.
Winner of two New York Dance and Performance “Bessie”Awards, Within between is a playful and complex dance exploring emptiness and in-between places. It is the sixteenth evening-length work that Jasperse, a 2014 Doris Duke Award Recipient and newly appointed Director of the Dance Program at Sarah Lawrence College, has created for his company, John Jasperse Projects. Stuart Singer will re-stage Jasperse’s piece for the Princeton Dance Festival on December 2-4, 2016, marking the first time that the work will be re-staged on students.
