Jumatatu Poe and Jesse Zaritt began working together artistically two and a half years ago, as strangers. Their current work explores that specific relationship, asking: what happens when two unknown entities create work together? Mutually interested in ideas of queerness and heroism, the pair’s creative process involves personal self-discovery within the framework of a partnership. In their new duet More Mutable Than You, Poe and Zaritt create a performance world that juxtaposes images of the conqueror, the valiant, and the superhero with notions of failure, the victimized, and the fallen.
