Live Artery: From once between (work-in-progress)
From once 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.
Live Artery is an annual event at New York Live Arts during the APAP conference, connecting dance and body-based artists, curators and presenters, Live Artery fuels a vibrant, nationwide network in support of compelling artists and ideas.
From once between is commissioned by New York Live Arts and is made possible, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support is given by contributors to the Dance Theater Workshop Commissioning Fund at New York Live Arts and the Mertz Gilmore Foundation.
From once between is supported by the American Dance Festival, MAP Fund, a project of Creative Capital, the National Endowment for the Arts and New Music USA. The work was developed, in part, through a residency at the American Dance Institute.
