Let ‘im Move You is a series of works choreographed by jumatatu m. poe and Jermone Donte Beacham that stem from their multi-year research into J-Sette performance. Initial research for the series absorbed the artists’ curiosity about the performance of joy and the conundrum of Black joy. 

This Is a Formation is the latest performance work in the series, bringing together a group of 7 Black dancers for a multimedia work to be alternately performed in black-box/white-box spaces, and on sidewalks and in alleyways in predominantly or historically Black neighborhoods. Compelled by J-Sette’s specific rules around formation and order, the new project confronts meanings, real and imaginary, of black queered bodies in public assembly.
