Moving Jacksonville: Jacksonville Dance Theatre’s 6th Annual Dance Concert
Jacksonville’s own critically acclaimed professional modern dance company presents its 6th annual dance concert at the historic Florida Theatre, highlighting the range of athletic, entertaining, and eclectic works the company is known for. The show includes repertory pieces by artistic director, Rebecca R. Levy, and Jacksonville’s own, James Boyd III, and two world premieres by choreographers Tiffany S. Santiero and Jay Jackson.
Ms. Santeiro’s new work, She Was Here, is about the women who have left impressions upon her life, with a score by local musician and composer, Jonah Pierre.
Mr. Jackson is best known for his drag persona, Laganja Estranja, seen on season 6 of RuPaul’s Drag Race on VH1. His new piece for JDT, Tanked, investigates the abuses of animals in zoos and marine parks.
