About this Show

Curated by J CHEN PROJECT’s Artistic Director Jessica Chen, “TRANSLATE (the voices of dance)” is a performance series giving choreographers an opportunity to explore their voice and perform their work.  Selected artists are invited to a salon to dance and discuss the necessary tools needed to build their foundation in making and promoting their work.


About the Artists

JESSICA CHEN, Artistic Director of J CHEN PROJECT, is an inspirational speaker, international teacher and a social entrepreneur.  She has taught master classes, workshops and seminars across the globe including TEDx Semester at Sea, Yale University, Cornell University, Boston University, Mt. Holyoke and University of California Santa Barbara.

Chen’s choreography has been presented at New York Live Arts Studio Series, Brooklyn Museum of Art and has received support from organizations including Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Fund for Creative Communities, New York University Asian Pacific American Institute and Asian American Arts Alliance.

Recent educational projects include the launch of her summer dance intensive the Mentorship Program in NYC for aspiring dancers.  She is thrilled to continue her partnership with Dixon Place for a third year with 2015 TRANSLATE (the voices of dance)

J CHEN PROJECT is a modern dance company based in NYC, founded in 2008.  The mission of J CHEN PROJECT is to start an artistic conversation.  It begins in the imagination of the artist, stretches onto the stage and lives on in those that witnessed the performance. We strive to accomplish this through performances, salons, mentoring, curating and inspiring artists to share their voice.
