Inside the Dancer's Studio with Jesse Factor

Presented by The National Center for Choreography at the University of Akron at Online/Virtual Space

Inside the Dancer's Studio with Jesse Factor

Join NCCAkron this spring for Inside the Dancer’s Studio, a live conversation series with choreographers from around the country. These virtual lunchtime talks explore creativity, craft, and career, and are free and open to all!

Join us on Friday, Feb. 12 for the second of our 2021 “Inside the Dancer’s Studio” conversations!

This series of free lunchtime talks with dance makers explores creativity, the craft of choreography, and navigating an artistic career. All talks will take place virtually on Fridays at 12:30 PM ET.

On Friday, Feb. 12, we’re joined by former Martha Graham dancer Jesse Factor!

Jesse creates solo work that combines a speculative view of queer histories and the archive with contemporary composition practices. He has created Mommie Queerest, presented at Queers in Revolt at Sam Houston State University in 2019, Kween Kong presented at the Harvest Chicago Contemporary Dance Festival in 2017, and Marthagany: the Spectre-Acle series, which continues to tour at dance festivals, performance events, and nightclubs. Jesse Factor’s studied channeling of divas in exile — from time and body — hauntingly reflects the impressions they’ve left behind.
