As part of its ongoing interdisciplinary project Endless Shout, the Institute of Contemporary Art presents a performance of Pew Fellow Jumatatu Poe’s Let ‘im Move You, organized by Endless Shout collaborator Danielle Goldman. Let ‘im Move You is a series of works choreographed by Poe and Jerome Donte Beachman that stem from seven years of research into J-Sette performance. This research informed Poe’s Center-funded project Private Places, presented in 2012.
This event is free and open to the public; register here.
Endless Shout is a multi-artist project examining the role of performance in museum spaces. Over the course of six months, six artists—designer Raúl de Nieves, dancer Danielle Goldman, choreographer taisha paggett, composer George Lewis, poet Fred Moten, and artist collective The Otolith Group—collaborate on an experimental series of dance, music, poetry, multi-media installations, and interactive programs. The project addresses questions about how, why, and where performance can occur, and whose voices are represented within cultural spaces.
