Field Notes from Shaky Places
Jansen & Holm
Choreographers Krista Jansen and CJ Holm are forming an expedition into their shared and separate dance histories. They’re coming back with unusual artifacts, rare specimens, and implausible field notes to explain where they’ve been and where they’re going.
Jansen & Holm make dances that are imaginative, spacious, and humane. Their work roots itself in an experiential understanding of the human condition, and uses image and metaphor to speak to a shared visceral truth. Their body-centered research includes gesture, spoken word, vocal music, and costume design, as well as pressing against the limits of dance technique. This event is their first evening of solo and duet choreography, and marks a new chapter in the partners' collaborative history.
