Within between is a new evening-length work by Jasperse in collaboration with composer Jonathan Bepler. Jasperse seeks both to embrace and to resist the habits of his own history, to create a cross pollination or catalytic mating of sensibilities, where the work emerges out of the space between what seems to be distinct terrains.
