It is my pleasure to present the work of dancer/choreographer Jessica Howard at Open Rehearsals: Dance and Movement, a performance event taking place at the RISD Museum on Sunday, March 9 from 1:30 to 3pm, and repeating on Thursday, March 13 from 5:30 to 7pm.
This is the first in a new series that will bring dance and movement beyond the proscenium stage and into other cultural and architectural contexts. My hope is to create more opportunities for the visual arts and dance/movement communities to come together, including makers, viewers and audiences.

I co-taught a RISD wintersession studio with Jane South and Michael McGarty in collaboration with Eva Marie Pacheco, artistic director of Providence Ballet Theatre to develop and design the set, costumes, and props for an original ballet production called The Magic Box.
