Invitation to Jackie Moynahan on May 2-3, 2014
Triskelion Arts’ Zoo Theater
May 2 - 3, 2014 at 8pm
Brooklyn, NY: Triskelion Arts is proud to present Jackie Moynahan’s latest work, Part II, a follow-up to her successful solo show Searching for Unconditional, this May in the Zoo Theater. Moynahan is joined once again by performance partner Henrietta, traveling through an obstacle course where intimacy is exposed and matters of the heart are pulled apart, in the artist’s typical dark comedic fashion.
Jackie Moynahan is a native New Yorker and a Brooklyn resident who has been creating and performing work in NYC and beyond since 2001. She holds a BFA in Dance from SUNY Brockport and an MS in Urban Policy from Milano The New School for Management & Urban Policy. Over the last 10 years, Jackie’s work has been presented in NYC theater spaces such as Dance New Amsterdam, Williamsburg Art neXus (WAX), Triskelion Arts, Studio 111, The Flea, Dixon Place, and Green Space, as well as out of state at The Kumquat Center (PA), The Yard (MA), Built on Stilts (MA), and Highways Performance Space (CA). Jackie has also created/performed in site-specific exhibitions at Pier 63, Transmitter Park, and the Engine 212 Firehouse in Brooklyn. Jackie has been a co-producer and resident artist of Studio AIR for eight years, where she has created and performed over 50 experimental solo works.
In addition to exploring her own solo artistic endeavors, Jackie was Co-Chair of the Arts Committee for the Northside Town Hall Community and Cultural Center until the summer of 2013, creating programming for the currently vacant Engine 212 Firehouse, which will be renovated into a community and cultural center in the coming years. By day, Jackie works in affordable housing finance, creating and preserving affordable housing in NYC. For more information, visit: www.jaxdance.com.
"Ms. Moynahan invented deliberately awkward steps and used them ingeniously in her choreography…"
