Jennifer Glaws brings her viscerally honest choreographic voice and rich investigations in ENERGY and SPACE to the Southern Theater's stage for a one-of-a-kind performance by Jagged Moves. The full evening, all female sextet, explores the central themes of boundaries and reclamation as flutist, Julie Johnson, performs a live, original score of her experimental and contemplative music. The dancers traverse the soundscape and mysterious, sculptural environment investigating the spaces between "us" and the relentless proclamation of the female voice. Crafted collaboratively between Glaws and the performers, the choreography amplifies the energy, chemistry, and responsiveness to the interruption of personal space by exhibiting a raw and exposed view to the tensions, control, power, or lack of power in proximity.
