Jump Rhythm Jazz Project
is at the Josephine Louis Theater, Northwestern University's beautiful dance performance venue, with a concert filled with their unique and rhythm rich approach to dance, movement, self-expression, and just plain enjoying life. The program, which is titled Getting Down, Going Forward
, combines the work of Jump Rhythm choreographers Billy Siegenfeld, Brandi Coleman and Kevin Durnbaugh with Northwestern choreographers Kat Scott, Hillary Aarons, and Aric Barrow.
"I'm really looking to cultivate choreographers who use rhythm and dynamics as their source material," Artistic Director Siegenfeld explains, "instead of shape and form." The result is a multicolored evening of insight into how artists can move and be moved. Here's our Photo Friday set of shots from the performance, and there's a lot more at johnnynevin.com.
