Jagged Moves

TOUCH CODE: (Re) Claiming Space

Jennifer Glaws’ Jagged Moves, “Jagged Moves has created a fresh dance experience in the Twin Cities! In the land of 10,000 dances, they have a unique voice. Their vision and execution keep you entranced. The movement and environment are navigated masterfully by the dancers,” (Audience Member, March 2018).

TOUCH CODE: (Re) Claiming Space
Jennifer Glaws brings her viscerally honest choreographic voice and rich investigations in EFFORT and SPACE to the Southern Theater’s stage for a one-of-a-kind performance by Jagged Moves. The full evening, all female sextet, explores the central themes of boundaries and reclamation as flutist Julie Johnson performs original scores of her experimental and contemplative music. The dancers traverse the soundscape and mysterious, sculptural environment on a relentless journey of agency, investigating the stories that reside between “us.”
Crafted collaboratively between Glaws and the performers, the choreography amplifies the energy and responsiveness to the interruption of personal space by exhibiting a raw and exposed view to the desire, resistance, uncertainty, power—or lack of power—in proximity.
